The Amazon Research and Conservation volunteer project in Peru aims to protect the rainforest from any further destruction due to activities like illegal logging and mining. Through research efforts, the project aims to create a conservation corridor for wildlife. This is to try and secure the survival of the Amazon and its species.
“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

This rainforest conservation project is situated in Las Piedras, within Tampotata. It is one of the most bio-diverse areas of the Amazon rainforest in Peru. It is only reachable by boat and the camp is surrounded by forest, as well as the Las Piedras watershed and all the wildlife that inhabit it.
When not engaged in forest conservation work, volunteers are free to relax in camp or explore the area. There are opportunities to visit local communities and beautiful natural spaces. Spend time at the oxbow lakes with giant river otters, or go to Macaw clay-licks. Bathe in nearby waterfalls and enjoy the sunsets from the viewpoint across the river.
