To be a volunteer is a good way both to do important things and to travel around the World. Volunteering for botanists is a great opportunity to visit new places, to meet new plants, to talk with local experts etc., but the same time you will be involved in interesting and useful activity to provides services for no financial gain to benefit another person, group or organization. It often takes small money from you, and it gives you very valuable experience, skills, knowledge, contacts, impressions and memories. Of course, the Global Botanical Portal can’t pass by such opportunities for botanists, specially young, so today we will talk how you could find a volunteer project for yourself.
