Your donation Biodiversity

The ecovolunteer program of Cybelle Planète does not benefit from any public or institutional funding, except the tax deduction, so it depends on corporate patronage and donations from individuals.
Whether you are a business or an individual, your Biodiversity donation is a concrete way of helping the Cybelle Planète association and its partners to pursue its actions for biodiversity and citizens.

The Cybelle Planète association works in partnership with biodiversity conservation programs. These are located in various places on the planet; they have all been the subject ofrigorous selection on our part as well as regular monitoring of the results acquired.

The programs we work with receive very little external financial assistance, and most of them are dependent on donations from nature lovers and eco-volunteers. Whether you are an ecovolunteer or not, your donation will allow these programs to pursue their project in the long term.

Give, whether you are ecovolunteer or not

The Biodiversity donation is for:

  • To those who wish simply make their financial contribution to Cybelle Planète and its partner programs, without necessarily traveling.


  • To ecovolunteers who, in addition to their financial donation, will join the program to help it for a few weeks. In all cases, your money will be treated the same and largely returned to the program (s) concerned.

Tax deduction

Each gift made to Cybelle Planète is eligible for a tax deduction (For companies or persons subject to corporation tax or income tax in France).

Your non-deductible costs

The tax deduction does not apply:

  • plane tickets,
  • visa and vaccination costs,
  • to your travel insurance.

Practical details

  • The tax receipt is issued in the name and first name of the person who made the payment of the donation.
  • Your tax receipt will be sent to you at the end of the current year, for simple donors, or upon your return from an eco-volunteering mission for eco-volunteers.
  • Donations subject to a tax receipt are not refundable.

Why does the amount of the Biodiversity Gift differ according to the mission?

Each project has its own needs (material, personnel, etc.) and which can be very different from one mission to another. This amount, associated with the cost of hosting ecovolunteers, will be used as a basis for the calculation to define the minimum amount of the Biodiversity Donation that we must collect for each mission.

Thus Biodiversity Donations are calculated as accurately as possible and adapted to each project.

A reduced biodiversity donation for eco-volunteering missions of minimum 3 weeks

The duration of the mission of 3 weeks and more are favored, estimated minimum time so that the mission of the ecovolunteer is a sufficient impact for a territorial compensation. For missions lasting at least 3 weeks, carbon offsetting is optional.

The 2-week missions are implemented with an additional donation, which contributes to a compensation fund. Our compensation fund helps finance carbon contribution (offset) programs selected by Cybelle Planète as well as the development of new partnerships with biodiversity conservation programs.
