Xuan Thuy National Park Project

The main goals of the volunteers are to support the park and its staff wherever and however they can. Every kind of work inside the parks administration area, and also eco-logical, scientific work inside the protected national park area can be done by the volunteers.
This kind of work cannot be planned ahead, the volunteers will have to be ready at the start of working time at 8 am and ask and look for work. The amount of work also de-pends on the season, because there are certain seasons when more birds are present, so that a higher number of tourists book tours and come to watch these birds. So this kind of work depends always on time situation, season etc.
