Conservation in the Amazon Rainforest, Peru

         

THANK YOU so, so much! I will never forget the time I spent there. Would love to go back one day

What experience do you feel you're gaining? Team work; expanding knowledge of another culture; construction; learning Spanish; understanding rainforest ecosystems

What is the best thing about your placement so far? One thing?! Okay, the people. Other volunteers, staff, locals. All were incredible. Friends for life as the cliché goes.

Would you recommend this placement to anyone else? Yes, yes, yes and a hundred million times yes.

What type of person do you think this placement would suit? Anyone who wants a drastic change of scenery, willing to work hard, and anyone who wants to reflect on what they're doing with their life.

What, if any, improvements could be made to the placement? Honestly, none. They were the best three months of my life and I would not change a single thing.

Was there anything that you weren’t told before your departure that you think future volunteers should know? No. It's the jungle and the surprises are half the fun!

Can you describe a typical day? Up at 05:00 to take a boat trip upriver to monitor the parrots at the clay lick, back for breakfast at 7:30, working in the biogarden into lunch at 13:00 then possibly a trail walk in the afternoon or a swim in one of the many nearby creeks. Dinner at 19:00, then a chat, game of cards and bed.
