Embark on an unforgettable volunteer trip and experience Peru’s dynamic lifestyle whilst making a real difference to the Amazon's wildlife. On this amazing adventure, you’ll volunteer in the capital city of the Madre de Dios region in the southwest, assisting with animal conservation and creating positive change towards animal survival and rehabilitation. With the extinction of so many species over the past century, we’ve reached a crucial point in history where our wildlife rescue and conservation efforts make a powerful impact. Picture yourself getting hands-on experience with impressive wildlife, helping animals recover into normal and healthy states, taste-testing the delicious Peruvian cuisines and contributing to an important, real-world animal conservation and rehabilitation project.
We offer the complete package for those looking to volunteer abroad and, best of all, we’ve joined with exclusive project partners to secure you a guaranteed volunteering placement overseas. You’ll be contributing to the Amazon’s biodiversity with both confidence and purpose. Our team will help you with all the essentials, from airport pickup to project transport, volunteer accommodation, onsite training and so much more.
Make a sustainable change on exotic wildlife, explore the country's natural beauty and break away from your routine back home as you embark on this incredible volunteer travel opportunity.

Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.

The beauty of this trip is that your days will be filled with structured volunteer duties. You’ll have the evenings and weekends to explore however you please. As a rough idea, this is the daily schedule you can expect:
Once you’ve touched down at Padre Aldamiz International Airport, your pre-arranged transfer will take you straight to your volunteer accommodation in Puerto Maldonado, only 25 minutes away. Relax, settle in and potentially meet some other volunteers.
Head to your cultural orientation loaded with information about the project’s history and wildlife. You’ll also get to see your project site and plan your extracurricular activities while you’re in the country.
