”My volunteer experience in Madagascar was absolutely incredible. I spent my trip working in the Marine conservation program and it was such an experience. The staff is so helpful and work so hard to make sure every volunteer has the best experience in Madagascar. One of my favorite things was falling asleep listening to the ocean. So peaceful and calming. I learned so much on this trip that will stay with me forever.”
