Biodiversity Research Institute

Iporanga, Brazil
Great place to discover the Rainforest
Aurelien Bernard
I'll never forget my 8 weeks in Ipbio, this was a great experience of life, very different from the industrial world I'm coming from.
While I was a volunteer here, I got the opportunity to work in different area of the reserve, from data collect to maintenance, and assistance to the researchers. This gave me the possibility to work with everyone, to learn from everyone. People working in the reserve are all very helpful, always ready to share with you there knowledge and their happiness.
Volunteering here will give you the possibility to discover the Rainforest, to visit PETAR and his caves, or the welcoming communities of the quilombos around.
Don't hesitate more and apply now !

Tortugas de Pacuare

Limon, Costa Rica
I love this project!
Olinka Welte Carreon
Hey everybody, I loved this project so much. The place is incredibel: rough, beautiful, challenging. Although it takes sometimes a while to get to see a turtle (because every kind of predator is already having a great impact!), it is a great moment to get to see this huge animals. I have been there several times during the leatherback season. And besides the turtle work, you can have fun with the other volunteers or you use the chance to explore the village. It is a very basic place but for me it was an important personal experience and it changed my opinion about a lot of habits I had before getting there. I could always talk to the responsables there if something was wrong, I think that is very important to feel well. I'm sure I'm not the only volunteer who enjoyed his/her stay there.

Volunteers Peru

Arequipa, Peru
Colegio Honofre Benavides Tomepampa
Jess Clark
Making the decision to volunteer in Tomepampa was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was really nervous at first, as the location was quite remote and I wasn't sure my level of Spanish was quite ready for it. However, I shouldn't have been worried. The rural location of Tomepampa is precisely what gives it it's beauty and charm; you can't help but feel happy and peaceful when you are surrounded by such amazing scenery! The locals welcomed us warmly from day 1, frequently checking on us to make sure we were OK, and telling us all about the area. I found the project challenging, as keeping the attention of many excited Peruvian children a challenge, but their hearts are big and welcoming, so you can't help but love them. My Spanish improved an incredible amount t over this time, and the snapshot of their lives that I experienced gave me a taste of what life for these people is really like. I strongly encourage you to consider volunteering in Tomepampa, not just to see the sights or improve your language, but because doing so will completely immerse you in Peru and you will feel completely at home in this beautiful country.
