A Rocha Portugal is based at Cruzinha, A Rocha’s bird observatory and field study centre set in the Alvor marshes in the Algarve. Cruzinha has a capacity to accommodate up to 16 people; volunteers are normally accommodated in male and female dormitories. It is surrounded by an environmentally friendly garden, an orchard and three small biological gardens, making it a desirable place for wildlife and pleasant for visitors searching for a rest.
First time volunteers usually stay for 2-6 weeks and all kinds of skills are welcome: DIY (handyman) skills, IT skills, wildlife observation and reporting skills, an ability to cook for large numbers, artistic ability and photography can all be useful. We would also welcome someone with experience of fundraising.
