This is an opportunity to get involved in tropical ecology in the Peruvian Amazon, contribute to long-term nature protection and learn valuable cross-applicable skills for a career in wildlife research and conservation.
The team brings diverse specialisations and interns will work alongside and learn from these passionate professionals. You can choose between an Amazon Ecology internship or a Wildlife Rehabilitation Internship.
“The skills I gained from this internship were invaluable but the experience was so much more for me than that. I felt like I had my own little jungle family by the time I left. I would highly recommend this opportunity for those with a passion for wildlife.” – Kiara Winter
About The Las Piedras region
Las Piedras is part of one the most biodiverse regions on the planet. With over 100 species of mammal, 200 herpetofauna, 700 bird, and millions of insect, fish, plant, and fungi species, volunteers see many iconic animals and something new everyday.
The centre is surrounded by lush primary rainforest typical of the lowland Amazon, home to a vast abundance of wildlife throughout the reserves’ unique ecosystems, which is great for research opportunities and important for conservation.
Off time is generally spent swimming, hiking, playing volleyball, playing games with teammates, watching movies on the projector, or simply kicking back in the hammock with a good book. Before and after you can enjoy tourist hotspots in Peru.
