International Volunteering Camp – Torre Guaceto 2018
The international volunteering Camp TORRE GUACETO 2018 takes place in the WWF Oasis “Torre Guaceto” (Brindisi, Italy), Marine Protected Area (AMP) and State Natural Reserve (RNS). The Oasis is far from the inhabited centers and immersed in the vegetation, overlooking a sandy bay and coves of rare beauty protected by small islands that delimit a mirror of water, on which stands a promontory where there is the coastal tower built in the sixteenth century. It is in this naturalistic context and environmental value that volunteer activities are proposed to those who share a passion for the sea and nature.
Only WWF adult members will be admitted to the international volunteering Camp TORRE GUACETO 2018. The minimum number to activate the Camp will be 10 participants and maximum 12.
