Volunteer Environmental Conservation in Latin American & the Caribbean

You don’t have to be a certified scuba diver to volunteer abroad on our projects, and there is no need to have an environmental science background to gain international conservation experience. You don’t even need to speak the local language where you are volunteering. The conservation and environment program is open to all volunteers whether you are on a gap year, at university or wanting a career break.
Conservation in Latin America & the Caribbean - What Is It Like?
From forest conservation in Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Peru to marine conservation in Mexico, a variety of conservation and environment-related volunteer opportunities are available. You will find that many of our conservation and environmental projects work in conjunction with other Project Abroad projects in the same locations. As a result, volunteers have the flexibility and opportunity of combining additional volunteer opportunities to their conservation and environment experience, ultimately designing a trip to fit their volunteering interests.
For high school students interested in volunteering their time on a conservation project, Projects Abroad also offers unique 2-week summer programs in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Peru, where students have the opportunity to work on sea turtle and crocodile conservation projects an animal release program, and help manage a pilot farm.
Whatever skills and talents you have, volunteering on a conservation and environment project in Latin America and the Caribbean, offers a rewarding combination of the new, exciting, and life-changing, as well as the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.
