This expedition to volunteer in South America will take you to a remote and beautiful biodiversity hotspot of the Amazon basin. As part of a small international team, you will experience living and working in the jungle together with local biologists on an important wildlife survey concentrating on cats, primates, macaws and other flagship species of the Amazon. In doing so, you will also aid community conservation efforts and the development of sustainable management strategies.

Based at a comfortable jungle lodge in a remote part of the forest, you will be working on foot in the jungle, recording cat, primate and other species and setting camera traps, as well as from hides observing macaws feeding on riverside clay lick sites, creating databases, and much more. All this as an integral part of a conservation project that will preserve an intact landscape of forest for further multidisciplinary research projects.

"Just a quick note to thank you so much for the opportunity to take part in Biosphere Expeditions' conservation volunteer work in the Peruvian Amazon - it was truly an eye-opening, wonderful experience and I enjoyed every minute of it. Great company, great leader and scientist, and a really special location.”  more testimonials
