Volunteers for Neotropical Primate Conservation

Neotropical Primate Conservation is a UK Charity dedicated to the conservation of monkeys and their habitat in the tropical rainforests of South and Central America. We conduct research on ecosystems, protect wilderness areas for the future, reforest degraded habitat, rescue, rehabilitate and reintroduce primates to their natural habitats and promote conservation education and public awareness.

We are seeking volunteers to help at our project in Amazonas, Peru.

Volunteers will collect data on the critically endangered yellow-tailed woolly monkey and other species, participate in habitat restoration and reforestation, and assist in improving local awareness on environmental issues through education activities in rural schools.

4 and 6 week long expeditions are available, starting mid January 2012 and mid February 2012. No qualifications or skills are necessary apart from a basic level of spoken Spanish, good fitness level, adaptation to hard physical work and basic living conditions and a willingness to help. We provide training in field methods, a window into a career as a conservation biologist and an unforgettable experience. It is also
possible to participate as an internship for undergraduate students if organized in advance. In addition to a challenging program of field research, you will visit to the Gocta waterfall, third highest in the world and situated in the heart of the Peruvian cloud forest, and to the ruins of the Chachapoyas citadel of Kuelap.
