Minimum of 2 weeks
Spanish is not a requirement, experience in biology / conservation activities is not a requirement.
Volunteers work in a controlled plot of land to eliminate introduced/ invasive plant species and to restore native and endemic species, growing the plants first in a greenhouse, and then transplanting them to their permanent locations. Volunteers also assist in community projects, such as burying a new water pipeline for the local community. In addition, they mentor children from INFA, working with them in hippo-therapy, gardening, environmental education, and fieldtrips to the Bio station.
2 Weeks 240 USD and 4 Week 320 USD.
