ETIV do Brasil

Environmental Conservation Ambassador

Agency | ETIV do Brasil

Gain hands on conservation experience working with an international NGO while gaining transferable skills and experiencing life in beautiful Itacaré.

About ETIV

ETIV do Brasil is located in Itacare on the coast of Southern Bahia. Our mission is to connect international travelers with meaningful volunteer opportunities to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil. We also provide stunning eco-adventure tours in and around Itacaré as well as cultural education classes including Portuguese, Samba and/or Capoeira classes.

ETIV Conservation Positions

We are looking for environmental volunteers to help us identify ways to promote and ensure increased and sustainable environmental conservation in and around the beautiful fishing and surf town of Itacaré, Brazil. Our main goal is to develop a new generation of local (Brazilian) youth leaders that will actively care for each-other, their community and the environment. This project will include implementing an educational campaign with fun and interactive trainings and activities to teach children and youth how incredibly important it is to take care of our natural environment and work together to combat global climate change.

We are working on created a training manual that can be shared throughout Bahia that will begin with the basics (what is pollution and why is it bad for the environment) and then move into some local issues (the Atlantic Rainforest, the mangroves and our endangered species) to global issues (including global warming and climate change). Volunteers will also have the freedom and flexibility to also focus on a micro project of interest with the community; from recycling to organic gardening, and composting to a possible mangrove restoration project... the possibilities are wide open!
