Exclusive Offer: Experience Vulture Conservation On The Front Lines

Experience Vulture Conservation on the Front Lines

VulPro will be initiating a new and exclusive volunteer opportunity, commencing in 2019. We would like to offer volunteers the opportunity to experience vulture conservation on the front lines, and thus, we have designed a volunteer itinerary which will guarantee a hands-on, practical experience, truly showcasing the work VulPro staff undertakes on a daily basis.

This unique experience will be offered three times during 2019, and will only be available to two individuals per course. The dates for the courses in 2019 are listed below, along with the planned activities for each course. For additional information and details, please contact us on kerri.wolter@gmail.com

This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity, so be sure to book your experience as soon as possible.
