Hi, I'm Jennie. World-traveler, photographer, dancer, model, artist, biologist, and founder of JennieoftheJungle.com. This blog is all about my stories, my experiences, and how I can help you. I hope to provide helpful and fun information for people traveling on a budget, especially to tropical destinations, and offer information to other conservation-minded people who are interested in saving wildlife and its habitat.
Feedback and questions are always welcome. Thanks for reading!
Hello again. This is probably one of my most important posts, as a lot of people request information from me on cheap volunteer projects abroad. Whether you want to volunteer for a couple of weeks or a couple of years, I'm gonna give you some information on how to do it without spending the thousands of dollars that some companies want you to pay them for setting you up with volunteer opportunities. Yes projects are expensive, but a lot of these "middle-man" companies take a profit from your contribution to the charity that you choose to volunteer with. So it's much cheaper to find these projects on your own. That's where I come in. When I'm not working my arse off to make actual money doing lab work, I'm in the jungle or the forest working with wildlife on a volunteer basis. Though my ultimate goal is to build my own wildlife sanctuary, I enjoy traveling around the world doing various volunteer projects with different kinds of wildlife.
