The program

This incredible environmental project places volunteers into the magnificent Ecuadorian Cloud Forest.  Volunteers have the unique opportunity to work out of a biological station situated in the reserve and undertake tasks that will preserve this amazing tropical forest for future generations. The program aims to to restore and maintain the reserve as well as work with the local community on educational and agricultural projects for future sustainability.

Goals of this Project:

  • To preserve the unique Cloud Forest reserve 
  • Work on projects to protect the diverse environment and improve the long term prospects of the communities who live within it
  • Educate the local people and the rest of the world on the importance of this to the world
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange between international volunteers and the local indigenous communities.

How you can help

Volunteers are essential to the success of this project and many of the goals could not be achieved without a willing volunteer labour force. The scope of the project is broad and volunteers could find themselves involved in maintenance and reforestation tasks, agricultural work on a small organic farm in the reserve, data collection and research related activities or environmental education iniatives and community service.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Assist with garden and forestry programs
  • Assist on educational programs
  • Assist with research projects

Journée Typique

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

7:00am Breakfast in the communal area

8:15am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

8:30am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

4:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

Evenings: Free time to simply relax, hang out with your fellow volunteers, have dinner together, then relax some more!

Activités de Loisir

The Cloud Forest reserve is located 3 hours from Quito in Pichincha Province. This unique environment is created as the Ecuadorian Andes transition to the Pacific coast. The result is an elevated tropical forest that contains a vast array of bio-diversity and is simply stunning to behold. Living and working in the Cloud Forest is an unrivalled experience for those who love nature and the outdoors.

Logement

Volunteers on this project have the unique opportunity to stay on-site in the Biological Station situated in the Cloud Forest Reserve.   

Rooms are shared, dormitory-style and split by gender.  Facilities are basic but comfortable in keeping with the location. Electricity is available 24/7 but volunteers are asked to use it sparingly and showers are cold water only (thankfully the temperature is mild year round).  Wifi is not available whilst in the Cloud Forest.

Bedding is provided so volunteers need only bring personal toiletries and towel. Laundry can be done by hand (bring your own detergent).  See the Additional Info. section for a packing list.

Three meals per day are provided at the project and are included in the program fee. Volunteers are expected to help with cooking and cleaning up (using a roster-based system), so everyone contributes at meal times – bringing a wonderful ‘family’ feel to this project.  

Volunteers spend their first night (Sunday) in Host Family accommodation in Quito, settling in before heading to the Cloud Forest on Monday. Upon completion of the program volunteers typically stay the Friday night in the volunteer apartments in Quito also before flying out Saturday.
