The Cíes Islands Volunteer Camp is an activity of the General Directorate of Youth, Participation and Volunteering of the Xunta de Galicia that has been developing in the Islands since 1979, without interruption except for the year of Prestige’s misfortune. For the summer life of the islands it is vital that the field develops its work of information, revitalization, cleaning, and environmental aid. And of course it is vital, above all things, the confluence and collaboration with the National Marine-Terrestrial Park of the Atlantic Islands through its personnel: the Forest Guard Corps of the Cíes Islands and the Park’s Guide Service. Together we can do a job that has been going on for many years and that hundreds of volunteers like you have been doing.


Before leaving, we would like to thank you because your work is very valuable for the protection of our National Park. Undoubtedly, the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia needs the help of everyone, but two volunteers like you, even more. The most wonderful adventure of your life is about to begin. An adventure that will make you believe that this world is the best world.
