What do our volunteers do? A volunteer of our program is a person who knows the rules of responsible waste management and has environmental habits. In the national park, this person communicates with visitors, explains to them why they need to carry out waste, how to sort waste during their stay in the natural area and where to turn it over for recycling. Volunteers work in shifts at five recycling points in the national park in groups of 2-3 people.

Volunteers are provided with accommodation in the national park, food, uniform and a short training course from the program partner, namely, the Clean Buryatia (Chistaya Buryatia) eco-club! It is possible to take this course both in person in the city of Ulan-Ude and online. The course specialists will help volunteers understand the topic of separate waste collection in natural areas and prepare volunteers for summer work.
