Wildlife Conservation Volunteering in Bolivia
TRAVEL BETTER ON A CONSERVATION VACATION

Really, you can make a difference, whether you’re 18 or 80. Our wildlife conservation trips are for people who love the wild and are passionate about the environment.

Our trips are about getting down and dirty, at the same time experiencing daily drama and delights. If you have a passion for Nature and the animal world, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn, if you don't mind the hard work and long days with quite physical work involved and erratic sleep patterns, contact us for a very rewarding working vacation.

Be in the company of some really interesting people and have fun while helping out with protecting the health of Bolivia's natural environment and the incredible wildlife that lives among it.

Join respected scientists in the field where they’re investigating critical environmental issues. Our volunteers make hands-on contributions to research while experiencing the cultural and natural wonders of Bolivia.

Where would you like to go? How would you like to get involved? Send us a message and we'll get back to you with some great volunteer opportunities as they are available.

WHERE?

• SANTA CRUZ - Far from the altiplano in the huge eastern lowland plains of Bolivia is Santa Cruz de la Sierra, a city where the warmth of its people is only exceeded by the heat of its climate. Santa Cruz is rapidly becoming  the principal gateway to Bolivia:  it is the center of the country´s economic growth, has the best international airport in the country, and is at a low altitude – only 416 m. (1,350 ft) above sea level. The rapid economic development has not affected the colonial character of the old backstreets nor the famous good humor of the city's inhabitants.

• COCHABAMBA - The city of Cochabamba (2,570m/8,414ft) lies in a 10 km-wide natural arena of rolling hills below snow-capped Cerro Tunari (5,180m/16,995ft). The dry and sunny climate is very pleasant and Cochabamba is known as the city of "Eternal Spring". The name itself is derived from the Quechua words Cocha, or lagoon, and Pampa, or plane. The population of 900,000 makes Cochabamba the third largest city in Bolivia. Great birding and wildlife viewing sites abound in this region, not least the national parks of Tunari, Toro-Toro and Carrasco.

• LA PAZ - A city for both enriching visits and adventurous discoveries. Lose yourself in streets brimming with life, where neighbors, artisans and sorcerers rub elbows amidst the daily agitation of typical markets. La Paz's outskirts also offer an array of spectacular sites, such as eerie rock sculptures created from ancient erosion at the Valley of the Moon. Bolivia is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and it is great to spend a few days in La Paz as the surrounding mountains, Lake Titicaca and Yungas rainforests are truly spectacular and mighty enticing.

WHAT?

Conservation Projects - Community Projects - Nature & Wildlife Exploration - Hiking - Side Excursions

While a Bolivia wildlife conservation trip is essentially a working vacation, you’ll join a team of trained researchers and professional wildlife monitors working on a long-term project to protect and help conserve our country’s wildlife and wild places.

Help protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people in all regions of Bolivia. Bolivia cannot achieve large-scale conservation victories without the support and involvement of those who share our passion for preserving our last great places.

When you're not working, Bolivia offers a fantastic selection of places to explore. You can trek in the Andes, relax by the shores of Lake Titicaca, visit volcanoes or salt lakes, or explore the tropical forests of the Amazon Basin, rich with distinctive jungle wildlife. Santa Cruz is close to megadiversity preserves such as Amboró National Park. Cochabamba is a short trip from the National Park of Carrasco and the National Park of Toro Toro. A short flight from La Paz will take you to the eery sceneries of Uyuni Salt Flats and coloured lagoons in the high Andes... Bolivia's primeval environment contains waterfalls, caves, beautiful landscapes, and dinosaur footprints. There are plenty more opportunities in the rest of Bolivia.

WHEN?

Interning at an Animal Care Placement in Bolivia
(sample trip example, fully customizable)

Day 1 - Arrive Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia

Day 2 - If you have a passion to help animals, travel to Cochabamba on the foothills of the Andes for Animal Care Assignment in the Yungas rainforests of Cochabamba.

Help look after wildlife rescued from illegal traffickers by becoming a Bolivia wildlife volunteer at CIWY. Nestled in a verdant riverine valley near the town of Villa Tunari, roughly 150 km from Cochabamba, lies Parque Machía municipal reserve and Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY).

Conveniently on the highway between Cochabamba and Santa Cruz, this local Wildlife Sanctuary has become one of South America's leading centres for the care of wildlife rescued from illegal traffickers. Over the past decades, animal trafficking has drastically increased in Bolivia and, as a result, Bolivia wildlife conservation and specifically the help of volunteers is extremely valuable.

When volunteering in Bolivia, your time at the sanctuary can be tailored to your specific interests depending on how long you are spending here. If you are spending two or three weeks on the project you will have an all-round experience working amongst all the residents at the sanctuary, and if you are spending four or more weeks you can choose to focus on working with specific animals at the sanctuary. So if it has always been your dream to volunteer with monkeys, or to help save the exotic birds, all you have to do is ask!

In order to work with the animals in CIWY centres, volunteers must commit to a minimum of either 14 or 29 days, depending on the area of work. Work with all felines and certain monkey groups requires a minimum of 29 days.

Final Day - Return to Santa Cruz or carry on to La Paz for your next assignment
