Make a REAL difference in Costa Rica with Love Volunteers Environmental Convervation Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
San José Province
Volunteers on this program will play an essential role in helping to conserve and protect this amazing environment. Participants could be placed at any number of wonderful locations around this spectacular country, dependent on need at the time. They will work on various projects aimed at preserving the fragile ecosystem in protected areas, parks or beaches. They may even work on organic farms, on butterfly farms or on research projects within rainforests. The list of projects is varied; however all serve to ensure the amazing natural heritage of Costa Rica is preserved for the future. From tropical rainforest, to rivers and canals, to white sandy beaches - the areas volunteers will be working in are rich with flora and fauna and are inhabited by some of the most awe inspiring creatures in the world. Volunteers play an important role by supplying free labor in often labor intensive projects, allowing the projects to continue in their great work. Like most conservation programs, funding is often limited and resources lacking.
Goals of this Project:
- Protect Costa Rica’s beautiful natural heritage
- Provide essential labor to help maintain park and reserve facilities
- Educate others on ecological practices
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.
- Training Provided
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available

How To Apply
Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to give their time and energy to help protect the natural environment of Costa Rica. This 'hands-on' project is best suited to those who are either pursuing a career in conservation/environmental studies, or who simply wish to explore an interest in this field. However, the project is open to all and does not require participants to have specific education, qualifications or experience, as you will be shown everything you need to know by your local project leader. Importantly though, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
