Conserve Birds in Hungary
Protect injured and orphaned birds on your European vacation; you and your family can make a difference and conserve birds in Hungary. Get to know Budapest in a new way.
About this project
Despite being a fairly small country, Hungary is home to over 400 types of birds. Unfortunately there is no a central organization to care for injured or orphan birds, and there are only a few non profit foundations fighting to save these birds.
You can play a part in helping these poor birds and the organizations who care for them by building bird boxes and swallows’ nests.
Main volunteering activities:
- Making wooden bird boxes to house injured and orphaned birds
- Working alongside craftsmen to create earthen swallows’ nests
- The volunteering project typically lasts for 3-5 days
- Approx. 4-5 hours each day
- Available all year round
- Blends well with nearby sightseeing and relaxation activities in Budapest
- Family-friendly (min age 10)
- Horse riding
- Aqua park and thermal baths
- Traditional folk dancing
- Cooking class
- Budapest city tour and Danube river cruise
Successes to date:
Hundreds of bird boxes have been constructed, and thousands of birds have been saved.
This project is for you if:
- You love birds
- You want to play a part in caring for injured and orphaned birds
- You would like to learn more about wild birds
- You would like to roll up your sleeves and get involved
