Natalie Kyriacou, My Green World

As the Director of My Green World, Natalie Kyriacou believes in empowering people from all over the world to take part in wildlife and environmental conservation initiatives.

There are currently many volunteer programs which promote expeditions that actually harm wildlife and environments, and Natalie wishes to provide education and ethical volunteering practices. My Green World is a wildlife and environmental organization located in Australia dedicated to bridging the gap between the public and wildlife and environmental initiatives. Partnered with 16 international charities, the organization  is a platform for the public to learn and engage with various organizations that have a positive impact on the natural world.

My Green World is undertaking an online ‘voluntourism initiative’ which will offer volunteer expeditions around the world. Each expedition will focus on wildlife and environmental conservation, and the organization will act as the liaison for these experiences, providing invaluable resources, accommodation, certificates of achievement and real world experience.
