Social Impact

Our volunteer and intern programs put promising young people in contact with the mentors and the experiences they need to shape their futures as biocultural leaders. At the same time, they have the opportunity to leave a lasting mark on local communities and environments, as they develop and execute a variety of projects in concert with local communities and conservation experts.
