Hello! My name is Esther, I am 19 years of age and have lived most of my life in North Wales, UK. I am a student but decided to take a year out before I begin my studies in Medicine (human) in order to do some volunteer work in Wildlife Conservation, similar to the work I had done in the UK with the National Trust, but in a new environment so that I could travel and explore a new culture. However working with animals in such a proximity is something I have never done before, but I love to learn.

Although I was very excited about the prospect of working here, I had no idea what to expect, so this evening view over the Axios River, on the first day I arrived, was very welcome.

I still have a lot to learn, and of course will do so in the coming months but already during the time I have spent here I feel that I have learnt so much in terms of the handling and medical care of the animals here. These are some of my current highlights:

Releasing the animals we have cared for such as this Greenfinch:

Looking after the Little Owl from first learning to give it water to now trying to heal a swollen external gland :

My EVS project will last from 10/3 to 29/8, all the volunteers I have met here in Greece have been very warm and welcoming, I am very excited for the days to come.


How to reach us...

We are along the cross street intersecting the side road of the Thessaloniki-Athens highway, at the 9th km, just before the Mercedes car dealership. Following this cross street, you can find us 1km ahead, towards the sea, just after the ZAK shoe factory.
