The Amazon Research & Conservation project in Peru aims to protect the rainforest from further destruction caused by illegal logging, mining and other deforestation reasons that is prone in the Amazon. Through their research efforts, the project aims to create a conservation corridor for wildlife that will secure the survival of the species and the forest.
“After 3 months I felt like being part of a family. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by amazing and inspiring people that wanted to share their passion with others. I would definitely suggest this place to whoever would like to have such an experience.”
Andrea Maffioletti, Italy
Get a short peek from this video into what volunteer life is like in the Amazon rainforest. Whether assisting with primate and mammal research or joining the forest rangers to monitor the perimeters, volunteers get to immerse themselves in a true wild and remote location of the world.
Get to live and work in a truly remote location of the Amazon alongside its tropical wildlife, and meet people from around the World who have joined the same cause. Contribute to important research efforts and learn from conservationists that actively work for the protection of the Amazon rainforest and its endangered wildlife.
The conservation project is situated in Las Piedras, within Tampotata, which is among the most bio-diverse areas of the Amazon rainforest in Peru. Only reachable by boat, the camp is surrounded by forest, the Las Piedras watershed and all the wildlife that inhabit it for volunteers to witness and contribute to their further protection.
Volunteers are free when not in the field and have time to relax in camp or go explore the forest. There are opportunities to go visit other places, including local communities, beautiful oxbow lakes with giant river otters, local mammal or Macaw clay-licks, bathe in local waterfalls or enjoy the sunsets from the viewpoint across the river.
