What's the Idea behind Skye Voluntourism?

Every year, our small population of 12,000 islanders welcomes over 650,000 visitors. We love to share and show off our Island to our guests traveling from across the globe. Each helps to support our isolated Island communities and the wider Skye economy. However, this incredible interest and resulting footfall does cause damage we need your help to fix.

We aim to organise teams of locals and visitors who will work together on projects that protect and preserve Skye's landscape & environment. With your help, our conservation work can safeguard the Isle of Skye from the impacts of tourism, look after its unique nature, stunning wildlife & breathtaking wilderness for years to come.
