Why is Oyster helping to promote this?

We have the pleasure of sending extraordinary volunteers and participants on our animal welfare, conservation, teaching and childcare, trekking and ski season programmes where they make a considerable difference to programmes overseas!

Many have logged their experience in a blog, presenting at schools to inspire others or by creating short-films to document their experience. We consider these a positive contender for the Endurance and Creativity categories.
