Volunteer on a Coastline Conservation Project in Ecuador

The Isla Corazon “Heart Island” is located only 30 minutes from Canoa, one of the best places to Surf and relax in the coast of Ecuador. You will help the project to conserve Mangroves in the Islands, and clean the Island from the contamination of the Ocean and the River, because the Island is located into the Chone river estuary. The money you’ll pay to volunteer with the Center is for lodging, for community projects and for maintenance of the facilities. Thanks to you, the community can increase their opportunities to plant Mangroves, maintain fishing activity (which is the main income for their families) and educate people to care about the Coastline of Ecuador, as they do tours inside the Mangrove tunnels of the Islands.
