Kampot – Cambodia
€ 450 Per Week
Dedicate your time to planting new mangroves in order to reverse the severe deforestation that has occurred in recent years!
Our project focuses on conservation of the Mangrove plantation, a vital ingredient for the eco-system of today, as well as future generations. Secondly, you will contribute to the sustained development of the local community. This will be in the form of teaching English, as well as several other community-based projects.
What’s Not Included?
The aim of this project is to conserve mangrove plantations in order to reverse the trend of the removal of mangrove sites, which has seen a rapid increase during recent years. This can only really be achieved through the education of the younger generation, combined with the continual physical work of planting new mangroves.
The province of Kampot is slowly emerging as one of Cambodia’s most popular destinations for both domestic and international tourists. Situated in the south-eastern proximity of the country, it offers an abundance of natural attractions.
A vital necessity for the tourism industry is the management of mangrove plantation Cambodia. Unfortunately, in recent years, numerous mangrove sites have been removed from local river banks. Instead, many locals favour salt plantations, as these offer a greater short-term profit. This has contributed to a severe increase in illegal fishing within the province.
A good level of physical fitness and a background in environmental-science or tourism would be advantageous, but not necessary
