ESDA MTV 5417 Cant start a fire without a spark 15.05.-15.09.2016 (permanent) ENVI 2 VOLS AGE: 20+
Minimun stay in the project is three weeks/1 month!
WORK: The area is covered with forest but due to a very dry and hot weather of the last months there is a great risk of fire in these forests. More than 45% of the fires in the area are created by tourists because of lack of information and negligence. Volunteers will try to inform, educate and control tourists in order to prevent fires in the area. For such work they may have to use bicycles, so their main work will be to bike around a marvellous mediterranean forest checking that everything is ok. If not they will be moving by foot. Volunteers coming in late August will start cleaning an environmental protected area called Las Salinas, due to the fact that fire risk is lower. Both activities will be determinated by the personal of the Town Hall.
Conditions will be the same in any case.
VOLUNTEERS MUST BE ABLE TO
• RIDE A BIKE
• DRIVE A CAR (ONE OF THEM)
ACCOMMODATION: Volunteers will live and sleep in a nice hut up in the mountains and will be able to go down with a car to enjoy the night life there. During the day (Monday-Friday) volunteers will work in the forest in an isolated house 5 km away from Calp but with all facilities. Volunteers will do shopping using a car and cook for themselves. Still there is a chance to get an accommodation in Calpe and that a volunteer will drive them up every day, so that vol.s will not be too isolated.
LOCATION: Calpe, a town with a long history and deeply-rooted traditions, is also one
of the main tourist destinations on the Costa Blanca. The Marina, the
promenade and eleven kilometres of coastline, marked by cliffs, beaches
and coves, are some of the many attractions. Another attraction is one of
the symbols of the town, the Rock of Ifach, a huge calcareous rock, 332
meters high, that penetrates the sea and gave the town its name. Calpe is
a beautiful touristic resort and it has many options for entertainment
(concerts, excursions, swimming, archeological sites, hikes).
