Amateur photographer? Budding botanist? The Croatian Ministry of Environment and Energy are looking for you. Croatia's National Parks have released a tranche of new volunteering programmes to get involved with this year. The National Parks provide bed and board in return for working on a range of awesome activities, from a week's photography placement on Mljet, to organising festivals in Medvednica or dolphin monitoring in the Kornati Islands. Check out the huge range of placements and apply to volunteer at one of Croatia's National Parks here.
