Description
Conservation of nature is a critically important issue for the modern society and there are many environmental organizations focusing on its different aspects and areas. Nature conservation includes a broad range of various issues from air pollution and global warming to the protection of rare animal and plant species. Often the solution of various environmental problems requires the joint efforts of scientists, politicians, managers, governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations and individuals not in just one country but in several countries.

Sometimes, even global efforts are required to investigate and find ways for fixing various problems. This often operates through joint multi-language projects and here we, translators come to help. For us, translators, translation for environmental organizations can be a stable source of income, but also an opportunity to contribute to a very important work as well as a source of interesting and useful information regarding the protection of the environment we live in.
