Environmental volunteers and interns that join the Amazon Research & Conservation project in Peru will assist in the project’s conservation-focused, scientific research in the Amazon. Research undertaken by the teams will help determine strategies for local conservationists in their quest to create a Biodiversity Corridor in an important river system.
This project is available throughout the year for Volunteers and Interns. We also offer Individual Project Internships for students doing University placements, anyone wanting to carry out research for dissertations, or scientists/students wanting to do deeper research. You can join for 1 week up to 6 months all year round.
