Volunteer in Peru and experience some of the most remote and unspoiled areas of the Amazon Rainforest. This project is looking for environmental volunteers to aid in the project's long-term scientific research. This is to measure the effects of human activities on wildlife, to get the collected information to the people who can act on the solutions to conserve the rainforest, and to make a positive impact on the Amazon ecosystem in this part of Peru.

There are four taxonomic groups for research volunteers to work with: mammals, birds, herpetofauna, and insects. Each project is 1, 2 or 3 weeks and volunteers are needed for a minimum of 1 week. Each volunteer will gain a broad spectrum of rainforest knowledge, and learn about the ecology and identification of their chosen taxonomic group.
