The natural equilibrium of the Amazon’s ecosystems needs to be protected and volunteers can be part of it.
The Jungle Conservation program begins with 2 days in Cusco where volunteers participate in a mandatory orientation session and receive information about their trip to the project site. Volunteers go to a conservation site in the Amazon Rainforest, outside of Cusco. There, they are involved in various types of work depending on the current needs of the project.
Volunteers take part in a variety of activities, including:
Reforestation-planting trees, shrubs, and orchids
Removing invasive, non-native species of bamboo
Wildlife monitoring-observing and counting species of birds, insects (especially butterflies), amphibians, and primates
Scientific research in biology, chemistry, and zoology
Educational workshops with local communities
On rainy days work may be limited to indoor activities, such as doing repairs at the lodge and/or working with the local school. Sometimes there are opportunities to teach English to the staff and community members.
