Travel to the forest of Oxapampa, just 1km away from Yanachaga-Chemillen National Park, a remote and rarely visited protected area of the Amazon, known for its abundance of rare cloud forest habitat and wealth of biodiversity. You’ll be living in the heart of the cloud forest in a remote solar, wind and hydroelectric-powered research base, whilst contributing directly to conservation and sustainable development efforts.
You’ll be assisting a local conservation organisation with protecting the forest by carrying out research and projects that’ll influence the increase of conservation efforts in Oxapampa. Some of your work will revolve around collecting data on specific species by identifying elusive species through animal tracking and camera trapping. Other tasks will revolve around determining the health of the surrounding cloud forest, and supporting the preservation and reforestation of degraded areas. In addition, you could also spend time developing education efforts to improve the community’s knowledge of the area’s overall biodiversity. You may also be involved in surveying sites for specific plants including orchids and fungi, learning to identify and record them.
Conservation volunteers in Peru participate in a range of activities all aimed at protecting and restoring the Amazon cloud forest. Possible activities could include identifying species such as jaguarundi, armadillo and ocelots or conducting research on orchids, ferns and mosses as well as the cloud forest ecosystem.
You might also take part in camera trapping and biodiversity surveys as they visit the Yanachaga-Chemillen National Park. This park is home to an abundance of plant and animal species, as well as several indigenous communities, including the Ashaninka and Yanesha peoples.
