Volunteering: Conservation in the Amazon Rainforest, Peru

         

The experience I gained was invaluable. I learned about current environmental issues and really got to know local communities and the culture of the area. The experience really opened my eyes to the world around me.

The best thing about my placement was the people I met. I learned so much from the staff at the center and also from my fellow volunteers. Everyone I met was so welcoming and eager to teach me about what they knew. They became like a second family.

I would highly recommend this placement to anyone, that is, if you don't mind insects! It was the most amazing month of my life and I would go back in a heartbeat!

In order to really get the most out of this placement, the volunteer needs to be flexible. The daily schedule varies with the availability of staff members, the weather, and the river. They also need to be self motivated and eager to learn. The volunteer needs to speak up and let the staff know what he/she would like to do or learn and they will usually be able to make it happen, and, of course, the volunteer needs to be at ease living with the many, many creatures of the jungle.

It's an amazing place and I loved my stay there. One of the best times I had there was on expedition. Not much more to say except that it was the best month of my life. Thank you!
