Ecuador and Costa Rica provide a wealth of opportunity for volunteers wanting to get involved in conservation of the rainforests, cloud forests and the flora and fauna of south America.
The incredible biodiversity of the region makes this the ideal volunteer placement for any volunteer passionate about nature. Each of our projects has a particular difference to it, whether a focus on orchids, on wildlife rescue, sustainable farming or replanting of the forest.
Volunteers can expect to be educated on the local habitat, and the challenges & opportunities faced. You will work closely with the local project directors, working alongside enthusiastic, like-minded international volunteers.
You live with other volunteers in volunteer camps in the forest, so expect a more basic way of life, with nature as your live-in neighbour. You'll get involved in some tough physical work, clearing trails and eradicating non-native species, while also planting new seedlings and organic farming.
