Peru Volunteer in Peru

"During my time on the project, I learned a lot about the medicinal plant use of native communities in the Madre de Dios region. I also spent time with the wonderfully talented ethno-botanist Natalie, who has taught me so much and whom I can’t wait to visit again!"

Peru prides itself on being home to a country of magnificent ancient empires, generous and whole-hearted people and breathtaking landscapes.  In fact, the value of the country’s history, culture and nature far outweighs all the gold that has ever been mined from its shores.  Rising from the Pacific ocean, the coastline soars into the towering mountains of the Andes before dropping deep into the dense, low lying Amazon rainforest.  Across all of this awe-inspiring terrain lies a diversity of cultures all as equally colourful and woven together by a shared love of food, music and dance.

It is no surprise that Peru also plays host to one of the world’s most diverse populations of fauna and flora. The species are as unique as they are varied and the opportunity to volunteer in Peru as a on a conservation project is nothing but a privilege.  After a trip to this South-American nation, it will be easy to say that no postcard will ever compare.
