The project

Since 2002, Velebit Association Kuterevo has been running a Bear Refuge for orphan bears. These bears are attracting visitors from all around the world and through presenting Refuge to them, we also present volunteering and messages of kindness, peace and coexisting between people and nature. VUK has been hosting various voluntary activities, with more than 200 volunteers each year, where the volunteers invest their time and energy for the common idea of doing good, which is creating a better society step by step. Along individual volunteering, VUK is hosting EVS volunteers (both long- and shortterm), SCI workcamps, Youth Exchanges, German Red Cross, scouts groups…

Velebit Association Kuterevo is currently looking for 4 long term volunteers from both programme and partner Erasmus+ countries who are interested in exploring Kuterevo during 6 months. As this is the colder period of the year, the volunteers will have the opportunity to spend more time with the local community, help with the everyday tasks of Volunteers’ Station, documenting the village beauties, prepare activities for the coming year and welcome spring and awakening of Nature in Kuterevo.

The volunteers will learn about bears, natural cycles, nature conservation, but also basic Croatian language so they can communicate with the locals more easily.
