Develop your conservation skills in one of the most unique habitats in the world.

We include a 1-week full immersion FREE Spanish course because we believe that it will allow you to have a greater impact on the project, as you will be able to interact with local people and communities and share knowledge and skills. The Spanish course is catered to your project and will teach you specific vocabulary that you will need during the placement. 

Illegal wildlife trading is a big problem in Peru. The country is extremely biologically diverse, but its enforcement of wildlife trading laws is unfortunately weak, creating the perfect market for traffickers. Rare, endangered and native animal species are regularly smuggled out of the Amazon rainforest and sold: Capuchin, spider and howler monkeys, parrots, tapirs, sloths, armadillos, caimans, boas, anacondas and turtles. During this traumatic experience, the animals are locked in extremely small cages, fed badly and kept close to other species creating stress and allowing the spread of diseases.

An indigenous Harakmbut family runs a rescue and rehabilitation center within the biosphere of Manu National Park, declared a world heritage culture site by UNESCO in 1978. They provide shelter, food and care for animals affected by wildlife traffic in their natural environment. They receive veterinary care and are rehabilitated to be then released back into the wild if they are strong enough to survive. This project has no public funding to support it, so they urgently request international assistance in the form of volunteers.

Come and join us to:

  • Find and rescue animals that were illegally smuggled out of their natural habitat.
  • Care for medically, feed and shelter these animals for as long as they need.
  • Rehabilitate and reintroduce the animals back into the wild.
  • Teach the local community and visitors to the reserve about the dangers of illegal wildlife trafficking, the animals, and their wonderful natural environment.
  • Create a bond between the environment and the community.
  • Create a sustainable operations procedure to keep this reserve running.
  • Learn about and protect some of the most unique and exceptional wildlife in the world.
  • Learn from other cultures and people like the Harakmbut.
  • And learn and practice your Spanish.

Whilst in the Amazon Rainforest, you can visit surrounding villages and tribes, find secret jungle trails hidden from tourists or go on a night jungle excursion, to discover the thousands of different species that live by night. Or why not pitch up your tent and enjoy a night with a campfire by the shores of the majestic Amazon River?

When you arrive in Cusco, there is plenty to do as well: Hiking in the Andes, downhill mountain climbing, rafting, paragliding, and horseriding are on top of our list. You can also learn how to dance salsa, attend a local cooking class, stroll through the city, or book a guided tour. And don't forget to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is Machu Picchu!
