Punti Salienti

  • 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.

It is no secret that the greatest rainforest 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. 

*Please note that this project is in a remote area away from our institute in Cusco. Depending on the time of year, there may be no other volunteers at the project with you. You should prepare yourself for some independence and be open to new experiences in an isolated rural setting.

Location 

Jungle Conservation project sites and accommodations are located 8 to 10 hours (or longer) outside the city of Cusco. Public bus transportation to and from the project site is included at both the beginning and end of your program. Please note that this is often an overnight journey, plus a boat ride.

Project Tasks

  • The project tasks will vary depending on local needs and various factors such as Spanish language skills, expertise and ability in this field of work. You’ll be expected to follow the directed work and tasks handed down by the on-site project managers.  
  • Reforestation work is physically demanding. Tasks include planting trees, shrubs and removing non-native species.   
  • Taking wildlife inventory of local flora and fauna
Please note...
Because Jungle Conservation sites are very rurally located, some of the comforts and conveniences you are used to may not be available. While you have access to all the standard Local Services while in Cusco, please keep in mind that at Jungle project sites:

 • Local transportation is limited and walking is the best way to get around. Taxis or water taxis into nearby towns are available if you want to buy snacks or charge electronic devices. 
• There is no Wifi at Jungle projects and electricity may be very limited, if available. 
• There may not be ATMs nearby. You should take the cash you need with you when you leave Cusco – our local team can help you to budget for the duration of your stay.
• Medical services are available between 30 and 90 minutes away, depending on the project. The project staff have training in first aid and can support you.
 • You should be prepared to entertain yourself in creative ways during your free time.

IVI are a non profit org with 28 years experience providing responsible volunteer placements in 15 countries worldwide. We help you connect with inspiring opportunities

Incontra il tuo ospite

Involvement Volunteers International delivers positive social change to developing communities and vulnerable populations through local, national & international volunteering.  Our projects empower the skilled & un-skilled to catalyse the efforts of local partners in creating a better world.


WHO WE ARE

Founded in 1989, IVI is a pioneer of overseas volunteering.  Back when there was no internet and phones were a luxury in many parts of the world, we traveled to developing countries in search of credible NGO's in need of manpower and global volunteer resources.  Some of the many relationships we forged are utilized to this day. 

We are passionate about volunteering and giving back to society and in particular developing communities which are less fortunate than us.  In this way, we combine travelling with volunteering to help people make a positive impact overseas.

SOCIAL EXPERIENCES
All of IVI’s projects have a strong social element at the core.  With more manpower (& womanpower!) we can truly catalyse the efforts of our local partners.  This means you're sure to meet loads of like-minded people from all parts of the world.   This type of experience truly broadens your understanding of the world and yourself, opening your heart to new enlightened ways of thinking .   With your new found travel companions, you'll have plenty of opportunity to explore and have fun!  

Our projects create a unique platform to experience the true heart and soul of a destination rather than simply the tourist areas.   We'll involve you in meaningful & responsible volunteer work that really benefits the local communities.

AFFORDABLE VOLUNTEER TRAVEL
As a non profit org, we are not motivated by shareholder profits.  Our fee structure is fully transparent to ensure volunteers hard earned money is going directly to the areas where it is most needed.  It is vitally important to us that the presence of volunteers has a positive and sustainable impact on the local communities we work with.   

We charge a one off US$275 application fee per volunteer to cover the running of IVI including administration overheads, project inspection costs, marketing, and salaries.

The program fee starts at $150 p/week and goes straight to the in country management to cover arrival airport transfers, on the ground coordination, orientation, accommodation, meals, in country 24/7 project support, project development, donations and related administration costs.   

In comparison to many of our competitors, our programs are incredible value.

SAFETY & RESPONSIBLE PROGRAMS
With approx 80-90% of our volunteers being single young female travelers, volunteer safety is of the utmost importance.  All of our projects include a dedicated 24/7 in-country management support contact as well as a dedicated placement manager pre/post journey.  This ensures you will be cared for every step of the way.    The local teams are highly experienced and qualified to manage emergency situations.

All IVI projects have been personally inspected to ensure the standards meet necessary guidelines for quality and safety.  In addition, we monitor and maintain communication with local embassies to oversee potential issues in order to notify volunteers and their families accordingly.   

Our Australian team are available 24/7 and only a phone call away.

Our responsibility also extends to the local people which is why volunteers working in childcare related fields must provide a criminal background check before they travel.   Our ultimate goal is the long term development of the communities we work with, hence we work closely with our local partners to ensure that projects are needs driven and sustainable. 

SUPPORT

From your very first inquiry, right through to your welcome home, you'll have the same dedicated volunteer manager at every stage.  We are experts in the field and will provide you in depth insights about what to expect and how to prepare to ensure you have an amazing experience overseas.  Every project includes a detailed welcome pack which provides all aspects needed such as in country contacts, what to pack, cultural values, basic language guides and much much more.   

On arrival at your destination, you'll be greeted by one of our in-country team and in many cases 1 week orientation is provided to help ease you into the way of life and ensure you're equipped with the right customs to ensure a successful volunteer abroad experience.  

FUN!
Volunteering abroad is quite possibly the most rewarding experience you will have in your life!   We know this not only through our own experiences, but through the testimonies from thousands of volunteers we have successfully placed worldwide over 27+ years in operation.  Volunteering overseas is not only rewarding.   It's fun!   You're meeting new people, you're seeing new sights, and you're expanding your understanding of yourself and the world.  You're experiencing something real and life changing in many ways...
