Directory Entry : Before the Wild Areas Network was born, Polish wilderness research camps and bird ringing camps weren't widely available to English-speaking Volunteers. However, in Poland some of them have over half a century of tradition. They are organized in cooperation with top Polish universities, government institutions and NGOs.​ On the camp you will work alongside environmental professionals and scientists willing to support you and share their knowledge on a daily basis. You will complete an intensive vocational training, a step-stone for your career in conservation.​ You will meet like-minded Enthusiasts, exchange experiences and make lifelong friends. Until now we've swapped stories from Sahara, Siberia, South Africa, Antarctica, India, Costa Rica, Galapagos...​ We are here to share our passions and work towards the common goal - protection of Europe's natural wonders and promoting them to the international Public.

Volunteers welcome on a Palaeontology Excavation Camp in Poland (Silesia) in July-August 2021. Work in one of the biggest mass cemeteries of mesozoic vertebrates in Europe and see some of the rarest fossils found on Earth!


What will I do? You will will work in a team of scientists and researchers from all over the world willing to share their specialist knowledge! At first you will be helping to remove external layers of soil and rock. Then you will work with more fragile details using geological hammers and brushes to expose the bones or sifting smaller bone bearing fractions through sieve. And finally you will work in the preparatory lab to process the fossils with very precise tools and fine drills.


Where will I stay? In a truly welcoming place, surrounded by three three landscape parks! We will stay in a comfortable bungalow near the dig site. We can visit nearby Jura Park with prehistoric oceanarium and museums where we can study or chill out during our free time.


Who are you looking for? It's an exciting international experience for Earth Sciences Enthusiasts, Students and Nature Lovers, but we welcome persons from all walks of life. You don't have to be experienced in the subject. The tasks will be tailored to your individual needs and high-quality field training is provided.


What's in it for me? We offer HANDS-ON intensive exchange of specialist knowledge and HANDS-ON experience in field research abroad accompanied by our high-quality training in fossil identification, handling, data entry and measurements. All of this confirmed by our unique Certificate of Participation to boost your CV.


We offer deep contact with Living Science 24/7! You will meet inspiring, like-minded people, broaden your contacts and gain unforgettable memories!


TO APPLY: Send an email to Joanna at info@wildareas.net and introduce yourself in few words, explaining why you are interested in our project and why we should choose YOU as a Participant. You will receive a detailed Infosheet and Application Form.
