Our Conservation Environment Project in Colombia is based deep in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. Volunteers stay at the 4.106,9 hectares Yahuarcaca Ecological Reserve. This project offers you the chance of a lifetime to visit and help preserve the most diverse ecosystem on the planet! Yahuarcaca you will get to take part in exciting activity. This has recently been recognised like World Heritage Wetlands .

The main work will be reforestation. Working on reforestation includes planting trees, shrubs and orchids, also extracting bad grass and alien species that invade the Area. Help plant fast-growing endemic trees to reforest deforested areas for crops. Not only are trees a source of commercial timber, fruit, dyes, resins and building materials, they also contribute to regenerating the land and reducing the harmful ecological impact on forest areas still intact.

You do not need previous experience to take part in this project. Volunteers are welcome.This project is perfect for anyone who is outgoing and has a passion for the Wild Nature. You will get hands-on, practical experience and learn about the natives way of life and their balance with the environment.
