Volunteer Environmental Conservation in South America

Volunteer feeding the parrots in PeruDonating your time as a conservation and environmental volunteer in South America is a wonderful way to experience the environmental wonders of the world, while playing an active role in conserving these precious ecosystems. You don’t have to be a certified scuba diver to volunteer abroad on our project, and there is no need to have an environmental science background to gain international conservation experience. You don’t even need to speak the local language where you are volunteering. The conservation and environment program is open to all volunteers whether you are on a gap year, at university or wanting a career break.

Conservation in South America - What Is It Like?

In Peru, volunteers work on Projects Abroad's private reserve, Reserva Ecologica Taricaya, a slice of unspoiled, untouched Amazon rainforest. From collecting turtle nests and eggs, to working on the innovative mahogany plantation, a variety of opportunities are available for volunteers at the reserve. Additionally, you will find that our conservation and environmental project in Peru is open to other volunteers as an add-on to their primary volunteering program. As a result, volunteers have the flexibility and opportunity of combining the conservation and environmental program with their primary volunteer experience, ultimately designing a trip to fit their volunteering interests.

For high school students interested in volunteering their time on a conservation project, Projects Abroad also offers a unique 2-week summer programs in Peru, where students have the opportunity to work on our animal release program, and help manage a pilot farm.

Whatever skills and talents you have, volunteering on our conservation and environment project in South America, offers a rewarding combination of the new, exciting, and life-changing, as well as the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.
