International volunteers summer camp in Foreste Casentinesi NP, Italy!

Volunteers are Very Important People. Why?  Because are the heartbeat of the many protected areas around the globe! Their talents and skills are matched with work preference to obtain a role that satisfies them and best fulfills the mission of the protected area. They can work on a part-time or full-time basis. Therefore not surprise that abbreviation VIP – Volunteers-In-Parks is also translated – Very Important People!

PNFC Volontariato 2015Volunteering is an American tradition that has made an immeasurable contribution to communities, organizations, and individuals throughout the country. That tradition is spreading around the globe and already several decades is firmly imbedded also in Europe and in many European protected areas!
