Conservation Projects in Guatemala

Discover conservation and wildlife volunteering placements with fully-vetted social enterprises and charities across Guatemala. Work side-by-side with professionals in the field of your choice, to protect one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world. Our placement advisors will work to understand your unique goals and skills, and match you with tailored volunteering opportunities, ranging from 2 weeks to 6 months. Online pre-departure Spanish lessons are included.

Why Volunteer in Guatemala

Guatemala is one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world, with 14 different eco-regions, from sub-tropical forests to soaring volcanoes, jungles and beaches. However, these areas face threats from over-exploitation of natural resources and deforestation. Many wildlife species such as sea turtles are threatened by environmental pollution and contamination, whilst other animals such as rare birds and monkeys fall prey to poaching.

Types of Projects

Spanish Marks is connected to a database of organisations working in a range of fields, from protecting single species to educating the public on environmental issues through community projects. There are opportunities to work across Guatemala from the Highlands to mountains or coastal areas.  Project examples include rescue, rehabilitation and release of rare species, organic coffee farming or creating campaigns to promote recycling in schools and villages. Work alongside environmentalists, biologists and community councils to make an important contribution to Guatemala's environmental sector.

Our placement advisors will contact you to understand the area you are interested in and what you would like to get out of a volunteering placement. We will then put together a list of 5 tailored opportunities for you to choose from.

Flexible Volunteering

All projects have flexible start dates, and project length can be tailored to individual preferences. 25 x online Spanish lessons are included, which will help you make the most out of your placement and give you a lifelong skill!

At Spanish Marks we also believe volunteering abroad is among the most immersive experiences you can get and should be accessible to all. For this reason, we keep our pricing as low as possible and avoid unnecessary fees.
