The key to saving wildlife is protecting habitats. Spend your weekend
in the countryside doing practical conservation projects with the 
British Trust for Conservation Volunteers

Have fun. Make new friends. Learn a new skill. At the same time you will 
be putting something back into the environment.

Residential weekends cost as little as 15. Accommodation, food, tools, 
protective clothing, and transport to site are all provided. All projects 
have skilled leaders who will give all the help and guidance you need. 
Anyone over the age of 18 can come along and take part.
