Conservation in Latin America

You will first travel to Costa Rica to volunteer on our sea turtle conservation project.

Volunteers may assist in the collection of scientific data into turtle behaviour to aid conservationists improve techniques that will protect the species in the future.

Next you’ll be heading the Ecuadorian rainforest to take part on our agroforestry and environmental conservation project in Ecuador. The foundation’s mission is to contribute to the maintenance and restoration of natural ecosystems, their resources and biodiversity for future generations, through the diffusion of productive activities that are compatible with nature; supporting values of social equity and respect for natural and cultural diversity.

Finally you will be heading for the world renowned UNESCO world heritage site Manu Biosphere Reserve in Peru to participate on a biodiversity monitoring initiative in the Amazon jungle. This project is truly sustainable, and it simultaneously works to protect and monitor the natural world whilst working with local communities on environmental education and environmental issues facing local people.
