As a volunteer, you'd be stationed in Frontier's research camp, which is based amongst the dense tropical forest on the edge of Corcovado National Park, close to the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Carate, and join the local efforts to protect Costa Rica's trademark fauna: big cats, primates and turtles.
Corcovado National Park on Costa Rica' Osa Peninsula covers 0.03% of the world's landmass, and yet it is home of 4% of the world's species. However, it is slowly losing its diverse and rich fauna due to human intervention, so extra support is needed to keep this earthly Eden alive. You can help by joining our extensive and broad biodiversity surveys, such as walking primate transects to collect valuable data on various primate species in the park, beach patrols to assess and survey turtle nesting habits and hatchling health and big cat track surveying and data collection.
- Contribute to vital conservation research in one of the most ecologically diverse locations on the planet.
- Work on many local development projects, such as beach clean ups, turtle hatchery days, community days and teaching opportunities.
- Awareness-raising and recreation activities in the local community.
- Big cats and other mammal monitoring using field sign surveys and camera traps.
- Forest trails, river walks and beach walks.
