Vacation Nation

We all love our vacation days, but fabulous trips to far-off lands aren't always in the cards. The economy is tanking...and let's face it—travel (especially by plane) is often an environmentally unfriendly option.

However, check out organizations like Ecovolunteer. It's essentially a travel agency for volunteers interested in conservation; you can choose by locale you'd like to visit or species you'd like to work with. It sounds like a fair mix of work and play, plus the chance for some up-close interaction with rare and/or endangered animals. (I vote for hanging with the river otters in Brazil!)
