Voluns Programs

Where is the Conservation Project?

Valencia´s coast is one of the most beautiful and sunny of Spain, with many kilometers of beaches to enjoy the sea in a warm climate and practice water sports, and that´s why it is also an important tourist destination, whose consequences are not always good for the environment. This Conservation Project is located in Denia, a traditional fishing town 100 km south of Valencia and home of the Marine Reserve in the Cape of San Antonio.

What’s in Denia?

Volunteers participating on this project will learn new skills and contribute to minimize the environmental impact of their travel and get involved in important conservation and research programs.

Denia is at the heart of the Valencia Community, between the cities of Valencia and Alicante and less than 100 km from both international airports. Denia is very well communicated with other Spanish cities by bus, and is also the closest city to Ibiza. It only takes a couple of hours to arrive to the amazing island by boat!

Discover the unique flora and fauna in the Montgo Natural Park, the Marine Reserve of Cape San Antonio and the Pego Wetland. With a castle from the 11th century, Denia is also full of history, music and traditional fiestas, like the Bull Run and the Moors and Christians celebration.
