About the project:
Having spent years working in wildlife management projects at bio-parks, sanctuaries and research centres, the brains behind the centre came up with a new approach to conservation back in 2011. By working in partnership with indigenous communities, the organisation is able to utilise both ancient wisdom and modern technology to protect important habitats.
Located on the left bank of the Beni River in the Bolivian Amazon, the Freedom project is in one of the most biodiverse areas on the planet. As well as preserving the environment and local wildlife, the project strives to maintain and safeguard the area’s cultural roots.
What you’ll be doing:
General volunteers are needed to help with construction and maintenance around the project site, and we’re also looking for green-fingered volunteers to help us build a sustainable vegetable garden.
We’re also recruiting for a veterinary intern for a minimum one-month placement. If you are able to commit to the full month, we will cover your basic expenses (food, accommodation etc.) after the first week.
Vet position: veterinary qualifications and/or experience
Knowledge of sustainable gardening is an advantage
