  :: Volunteer Dominica

Fondly referred to as the “Nature Island” by the locals, Dominica is a country with unlimited eco-tourism potential. Over sixty percent of the island is covered in tropical forests where native wildlife roam free in a natural habitat that has been beautifully preserved for centuries.

The surrounding ocean offers even more possibilities with thriving coral reefs and a vast array of marine wildlife. Scuba diving and snorkelling offer the perfect opportunity to see this magnificent underwater world first hand and will prove to be an incredible experience. Given these impressive surroundings it is hardly surprising that the island was chosen as the backdrop for the 2006 blockbuster The Pirates of the Caribbean II: Dead Man’s Chest.

The island relies upon its tourism and agricultural industries but regular problems with the banana crops and a gradual decline in demand for the fruit has left Dominica in an economic crisis. Forty percent of the population now live in poverty and at least 23% are unemployed. Despite these troubled times Dominica’s native peoples remain some of the friendliest in the area and have managed to retain many aspects of their traditional culture. Dominica is one of the few remaining Caribbean islands that boast descendents from the original Carib people and they have their own 3000 acre reserve along the east coast.
