I did not want to miss out on my time I had as a volunteer at the European Wilderness Society. I made a lot of great experiences, learned many new skills and grew personally.

The time in Tamsweg has really flown by within this exciting opportunity to work in nature conservation and live in the beautiful UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Lungau. In summary, this year was truly full of opportunities for learning and personal growth, skiing and hiking and regular dinners with the team.
