Almost a third of Costa Rica’s land extension is kept as Natural Parks, preserved landscapes and low impact tourism industry.
Our programs in this area aim to help preserve endangered species, improve corridor restoration and reinforce sustainability.
Volunteers interested in this area can choose among the following projects:
Animal conservation: you’ll help local staff involved in wildlife protection, looking after animals in danger, participating in educational projects and creating promotional material.
Sustainable agriculture and gardening: you’ll help cooperative and other community projects that promote sustainable agriculture and tourism activities, promoting practices that don’t contaminate or endanger the natural environment.
Eco-parks: you’ll be helping local staff with trail building and restoration, interpretation and translation of signs, maps and information notices, cleaning-up and a variety of other ongoing projects that include reforestation and educational and awareness programs for local students and community members.
The minimum duration of these programs is two weeks and volunteers need to have intermediate Spanish language skills.
