Program Description:
Volunteer and be part of a community development project specially created for the Amazon, Coast and Galapagos. The project was founded in 1985 with its original conservation center in the Ecuadorian Amazon, this premiere biological preservation foundation is committed to research and habitat restoration in natural areas deemed the most at risk by international conservation organizations. Despite its small land mass, Ecuador is renowned for its megadiversity due to its variety of life zones, including: mangrove swamps, dry tropical forest, tropical cloud forest, and tropical lowland rainforest, not to mention the legendary range of plants and wildlife on the Galapagos islands. In the Amazon, monitoring of rare or endangered bird and monkey species and reforestation are the primary research areas.

Interns can hike or horseback ride throughout the forest to explore waterfalls and take in nature as you observe different wildlife. Volunteer dates begin year around and last anywhere from two weeks to one year. 3 meals per day are provided along with housing and cultural activities within the community. All projects are chosen by the community and based off of the needs of the Reserve. Gain real hands-on environmental conservation experience while improving your Spanish at the same time!
