There are several ways to volunteer to protect our environment including volunteering your time, your finances and simply creating awareness through education.

3. Host a cleanup whether its for a park, beach or the neighborhood!

4. Volunteer to help out wildlife rescue and rehabilitation programs doing animal care or administrative work.

Another way to protect our earth, is by training communities to understand first why we should protect the earth. Because the same communities are the one destroying. If they have knowledge ,then they will understand how to restore and do practically.

Volunteering can also have significant environmental benefits. 

Volunteers often work on conservation or sustainability projects that contribute to the protection and restoration of natural environments. 

This work can help combat climate change, protect biodiversity, and promote sustainable development.

In this chapter we shall take a look at what volunteering means, how we can volunteer, and the benefits of volunteering to the environment. 

Who is a volunteer?

A volunteer is a person who does something, especially helping other people, willingly and without being forced or paid to do it. 

People volunteer in order to help others in need. This type of volunteering is most common in social welfare and in large, formal organizations such as charities. Volunteers are frequently managed in the same way as paid staff, and they are recruited and trained for specific roles.

Whether you are a parent wanting to get back to work, or a retired person wanting to give back to your community or a student who wants to gain experience. The experience and skills gained from volunteering with charities can be invaluable.
