High­lights

The fate of the Amazon and the countless animals and plant species, along with the people who live there, rely on reforestation efforts.
Reforestation is a key action to help mitigate the effects of climate change, as new trees help reduce the amount of CO2 in the air and also limit erosion.
Peru’s Amazon Jungle is one of the last primary forests in the world, has a unique ecosystem and is one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth.
The species that live in the rainforest are native to the area and would disappear if their natural habitat were ruined.
Amazon projects have a clear impact you can directly see, and if you return in just a few years you are able to witness just how much your work literally transforms the area.
Home to an incredibly diverse array of flora and fauna, these forests are at severe risk to deforestation through the effects of commercial logging and cattle production This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

It is no secret that the greatest Rain Forest in the world which plays a vital role in the Earth’s eco system is under severe threat due to commercialism, deforestation and land acquisition from major corporations.  Given the incredibly rich soil and agriculture growing opportunity, private and government enterprises are enticed by the economic opportunity of this region.  With increased environmental protection, deforestation has slowed, however assistance from global volunteers is needed to ensure these efforts continue to be enforced and the damaging trends reversed.  

The Peruvian Amazon is one of the most bio diverse regions on the planet.   The work you do here is vitally important on a local scale but also a macro global scale in an effort to help save the planet and combat climate change.   To help reduce the amount of Co2 in the atmosphere, planing trees and inhibiting further deforestation is vital.  

In this incredible project, global volunteers assist in various reforestation, wildlife monitoring, organic gardening, educational workshops, trail maintenance and related activities.   The daily efforts are directed by local environmentalists, biologists and local professionals who have an in depth understanding of the local needs and opportunities.   These projects server remote communities who have a deep connection and reliance on the forest.
