Peru Amazon Rainforest Project Volunteer

Volunteers with the Peru Amazon Conservation Project help research, conserve and protect the spectacularly rich and biologically diverse Peru Amazon rainforest.

Volunteers work directly alongside conservation experts as researchers (bird, mammal, caiman, herpetofauna), forest rangers, nature and wildlife photographers, or general conservationists.

Join the jungle team in the unrivalled Manu National Park in the Peruvian Rainforest. Work alongside international and Peruvian staff in their efforts to conserve this important Eco system at the Peru Amazon Conservation Project!

Volunteers get to monitor many different species, check camera traps and trek deep into the jungle. Live as a conservation volunteer in the Amazon Rainforest for a once in a lifetime experience!

The project also advocates sustainable and environmental business practices as an effective way to conserve the Amazon rainforest. By helping at this project, volunteers play an important role in conservation efforts on the Amazon front lines, while also learning more about this unique natural wonder.

Globalteer is a UK registered charity providing volunteer placements working in Wildlife Rescue and Conservation in South America and Asia.

Why Globalteer?

As a UK registered charity, Globalteer is different than many other organisations who connect volunteers with delete projects around the world, as we are 100% not-for-profit, so the more money we raise, the more we can invest in helping the delete projects we work with.

By volunteering with us you will be helping established projects with long-term goals to bring practical and achievable solutions. All the projects we work with have been chosen by Globalteer because they are answering a genuine need, and are working towards making asustainable difference in their local community.

Because our projects have clear objectives and a demand for volunteers to help achieve these objectives, there will always be work for you to do - every volunteer has a vital role to play during their placement.

Where your money goes

The placement fee that we ask for not only covers the costs of organising your placement, but unlike most other organisations, a donation is always made directly to the project on behalf of each volunteer – no matter how short the placement. So not only will you be helping the elephants while volunteering, but your donation will support the welfare of the elephants and the sanctuary's long-term objectives in the years to come!

We don't charge a registration or application fee, and you are required to pay nothing until you are accepted and ready to commit to your placement. More than that, we clearly list everything that is included in your placement on our website, which as a minimum includes accommodation, transfer on arrival, in-country support, letter of reference (if requested) and orientation.

As a charity, we are legally required to ensure that all money we receive is used to achieve our charitable objectives, so you can be sure that every dollar donated by you will go towards a good cause!
