Voluntariado con aves en Tailandia

#Nota de F: Otro voluntariado donde te dan comida y alojamiento a cambio de tu avanzada educación -requieren un graduado- y trabajo exigente. ¿Deberías solicitarlo? Mi opinión es que sólo si estás atrapado, sin otra salida. Si estás amargado, llevas meses sin encontrar un trabajo decente y no te llega para el alquiler con lo que ganas poniendo copas. Si es así, mete tus trastos en cajas, déjalas en casa de algún amigo y ahórrate el alquiler unos meses.  La otra opción -no excluyente- es que busques financiación complementaria y uses el proyecto para pedir tus propias becas (por ejemplo, aquí). Así podrás convertir el voluntariado en unas prácticas remuneradas y además, quedará mejor en tu cv.

The “Avian Diversity Project” in Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve, is seeking to recruit several short (6 months) and/or long term volunteer on a rolling basis for ongoing diversity and behavioural research on the Avifauna. The project involves point count surveys at multiple locations in and around the Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve in North East Thailand. This rewarding (yet physically challenging) position provides valuable field research experience in the field of avian diversity and conservation.
