Volunteer or Intern in the Peruvian Amazon with a rainforest regeneration project. Plant a tree or a hundred and learn from our team of master Amazonian agroforesters. Spend your days walking in the primary forest, learning plant species, and boating up and down the Tambopata River, and be part of regenerative efforts in the Amazon rainforest.
The reforestation centre is a pilot site for innovative agroforestry systems and restoration strategies. With over 20 hectares and 25,000 trees, representing over 400 different species of trees reforested, there are lots of delicious fruits to taste.
“This is the real deal! This project is inspiring and demonstrating what it means to regenerate the rainforest. In the heart of the Amazon, there is so much life and biodiversity that the team is working to bring back. They are dedicated & knowledgeable of rainforest restoration in tandem with local people. They address deforestation at its core.” – Past Volunteer
About the Tambopata River
This conservation project is situated along the Tambopata River, located in the Madre de Dios region. This is also known as the Peruvian capital of biodiversity. The team works along the Tambopata River, an area that still holds many species of flora and fauna already extinct in other regions.
On the banks of the Tambopata River, our reforestation centre sits in the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve. The centre includes and is surrounded by large areas of primary rainforest, one of the world’s most biodiverse forests. We are 2.5 hours from regional capital Puerto Maldonado, a trip made by boat and car.
Free time means enjoying walking forest trails, tasting new fruits, practicing your Spanish with the staff members, or visiting the mammal claylick. If you plan a longer stay, you can visit the nearest city of Puerto Maldonado and enjoy typical jungle town life and tasty local food. Peru is also known for the world wonder Machu Picchu.
