The Kotychi – Strofylia Wetlands Managing Body, following expressions of interest by young people in the region, has organised a network of volunteers for the purpose of guarding the protected region, preventing fires, conserving the rare Strofylia forest and the wetlands environments.
Volunteers have an opportunity of coming into direct contact with the natural wetlands environment, the forest, the beach and the National Park region in general through the programme, by volunteering and supporting the management tasks that are performed daily in the forest and the lagoons.
They will also be involved with activities that are not common place in their daily lives, come into direct contact with the Managing Body personnel and visitors to the National Park and shall gain valuable experience by actively participating in carrying out a community service.
Participants shall have the opportunity of being involved in activities related to the following sectors (without necessarily being restricted to these activities):
- Collecting – classifying environmental date – field work;
- Observing and recording species of fauna and flora;
- Marking out paths and new routes, maintaining – repairing the existing;
