About

The Corcovado National Park, home to 2.5% of the world's biodiversity and 50% of Costa Rica's wildlife, is one of the most biologically fascinating places on the planet. The rainforest exhalates life, from healthy trees to colorful birds to the endangered tapir; this is why the conservation efforts of this region are extremely important nowadays.

Join two local organizations and play a role in the sustainability movement through your volunteering. You'll help by planting trees to prevent flooding on the river, setting up camera traps to record wildlife data, and visi a local family's home to learn from local farmers and discuss life in Costa Rica over a homely dinner with a local mother.

You'll be part of larger initiatives that work intensely to protect the land from human development. Every time you're not working with the local community, you'll chill in your tent and enjoy some good beach time.
