Program Description

Participate in the development and implementation of sustainable projects at the Education Center in Conservation and Sustainable Development, in Peru. The center is located in Oxapampa, surrounded by more than 15 hectares of rainforest, two streams, and cultivation areas with local fruit crops. The center will set up examples and models of sustainable activities that can be replicated. This expedition covers a wide range of topics, such as riparian forest restoration, organic cultivation, water treatment, and water quality. The program is ideal for those who want to learn about conservation, environmental science, or related fields.

Activities for volunteers can vary from developing trails, signs for the trails, and working in different projects to production of information for students and other volunteers and collecting scientific data.


1. Promote sustainable living and thinking by providing a model that others can replicate.
2. Reduce forest fires in Peru by spreading awareness of alternative agriculture practices.
3. Establish a baseline for forest and water quality and continue to monitor changing conditions through data collected by volunteers.
4. Produce organic, native crops to create a market for these products to encourage local farmers to do the same.
5. Live with an indigenous family and go on weekend day excursions.


The Volunteer is expected to arrive with a positive attitude and a desire to work, learn, and have a little fun! Must be physically fit and accustomed to the camping lifestyle.
