If you are interested in spending a few weeks helping out at the Romanian bear sanctuary, you can do just that through the company Oyster Worldwide. Oyster Worldwide is a well regarded gap year travel and responsible travel specialist and one of their programs enables you to spend a week or more helping out at the bear sanctuary.
Daily tasks:You will be helping the full time staff with the day-to-day tasks at the Bear Sanctuary. Most of your time will be spent sorting out the food for the bears to eat. You will assist the staff with feeding the bears and monitoring their behaviour. To add some variety to the placement, you may decide to volunteer at a local dog shelter for a day or two during your stay. There are limited spaces available for volunteer work at the sanctuary in 2012 – so if you are interested contact Oyster Worlwide soon.
