About

Immerse yourself in the one of the most biodiverse and largely unspoiled regions in the world. Research volunteers and interns are needed to help with long term scientific research in the Peruvian Amazon; to better measure the effects of human activities on wildlife.
Each project is 1, 2 or 3 weeks and involve the opportunity to work with four taxonomic groups: mammals, birds, herpetofauna and insects. For longer durations above one month, you will qualify for a Research Assistant Internship position (1 to 10 months in duration).

Each volunteer and intern will gain knowledge on all taxonomic areas the project researches including the ecology and identification of species, field methods and threats to the rainforest. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the ongoing dialogue between conservation groups, the government, local grass-roots organisations and communities concerning the appropriate use of the Amazon rainforest.

Peru is treasured for its gastronomy, Incan history, and stunning Andes mountains. As you travel, you will notice the pride the Peruvians have for their heritage of having been not only the Incan empire but Spain's South American empire. Peru's eco-tourism is growing the quickest of any South American country. If you are looking to tap into a currently less-frequented travel destination, pick Peru.
