Volunteer and Intern Opportunities

Join us on the challenging frontier of Amazon rainforest conservation and assist one or more of our project teams with wildlife research, community work and environmental education, nature photography and film making, green business development, and forest ranger duties. This is your opportunity to learn and contribute to a cause for global good - as protecting rainforest is a sure way to control climate change and prevent the extinction of many species. No previous experience required.

Nature Conservation and Sustainable Development in the Amazon Basin is a Collaborative Process. Come and Learn How it is Done

For the last 20 years, Fauna Forever’s wildlife research teams have been active in the Peruvian Amazon monitoring the diversity, abundance, community assemblage, and geographic distribution of four major vertebrate groups (birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles); two groups of insects (dung-beetles and butterflies); and multiple species of plants, with an emphasis on keystone tree species such as Ficus, Dipteryx, Ceiba, and palms. With data collected from 60 locations, we are able to monitor and document how human activities in this part of the humid tropics impact or benefit wildlife. We are particularly focused on how wildlife responds to conservation actions, such as the establishment of reserves, national parks, forest concessions and other protected area categories; as well as to natural resource extraction activities such as Brazil nut harvesting, selective logging, bush meat hunting, gold mining, cattle ranching and agriculture, and the growth of human settlements of native and colonist origin. We also committed to assisting local communities to become more sustainable in the ways they use forest resources, and to partnerships with other non-profits involved in the hard, day-to-day work of forest protection.
