Wildlife and Ecosystem Conservation in Botanic Gardens
This project - known by the locals as 'Grand Paradise’, was set up 25 years ago and is run by 30 individuals based in a 35 acre nature reserve, 15 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz. It’s goal is to nurture and protect the natural environment, ecosystems, flora and wildlife of Bolivia within their protected area. There are over 600 plant species in the park with birds and mammals living free within it. Park guides educate visitors about conservation, the importance of their natural world and teach traditional techniques, stories and histories of local environmental customs. The park includes collections of Palm trees, Orchids, Bonsai, plants used in traditional medicine as well as native birds, mammals and reptiles.
About Kaya Responsible Travel
The Arches, North Campus Incubator, Sackville Street, Manchester, M60 1QD, GB
Kaya's mission is to promote sustainable social, environmental and economic development, empower communities and cultivate educated, compassionate global citizens through responsible travel.
Responsible travel is about seeing the world in a manner that most respects and benefits local people, culture and the environment - it's travel in the real world, not tourism.
Every year thousands of people travel the globe looking to explore new environment and experience different cultures, with a spirit of adventure and a desire to learn more about the world.
As global travel becomes more accessible, and we look to visit further and more exotic locations, we often discover that the real world is not always easy to uncover, and often visitors don't get a chance to see beyond the window that tourism can offer.
As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to become a real part of the environments, lives and communities of the world's developing nations. And whether you chose to work on projects that benefit the wildlife, the environment or the people, you come away knowing that your being there has positively impacted those you have visited.
At Kaya, we pride ourselves on delivering only what is best for our volunteers and best for the communities which we are working with. You will find many volunteer organizations to chose between today, and many of these are also offering great placements around the world. But we believe that no-one works closer with their volunteers and with the receiving communities on the ground to make sure everyone can achieve the greatest benefits that volunteering has to offer.
For those of you who have skills that can benefit the projects, and even if you are looking to develop your professional skills in a developing country, your help is invaluable and Kaya staff will work with you to ensure your role matches your skill.
Internships, group ventures and specialist projects can be arranged by request.
We'll work with your schedule.
