In poorer countries ecological conservation often takes a back seat to other developmental issues. Working as a conservation volunteer you will have the opportunity to make a great difference for the local people, wildlife and conservation organizations where others otherwise can't. As an environmental conservation volunteer in South America you can expect your days to be physically demanding, with long hours but in return you can be sure to have an immensely rewarding experience.

Volunteer Opportunities may include:

Working as a guide at an eco-lodge.
Working with local NGOs.
Educating local people about environmental conservation practices.
Working with organizations for the protection of sea turtles.
