What can you do?

Activities for volunteers and interns are:

  • Design an environmental education manual for children from schools surrounding the garden.
  • Develop educational materials for students and children.
  • Assist in maintenance activities of the garden.
  • Growing edible species, medicinal, craft, ornamental and timber species with compost prepared in the garden.
  • Assist with the identification of species of flora and fauna that there are in the garden.
  • Update inventory of birds that come to the garden.
  • Write profiles on several Web sites (national and international organizations of orchids and botanical gardens).
  • Support research and identification of new species of flora and fauna.
  • Strengthen activities with the families of the surrounding communities.
  • Support the inclusion of disabled people in activities within the garden.
  • Assist in the preparation of meals using products from the Amazon.
  • Look for funding and develop projects that strengthen the several activities of the garden and the community: the opening has been given to the student for research, has created great needs that have not been captured, as the creation of a library, a laboratory with equipment, cabins for lodging of volunteers.
  • Here the student finds a space for their practices or theses on various topics: feeding, botany, ecotourism, entomology, etc..


Volunteers and interns should be able to speak at least an intermediate level of Spanish, and have an interest in environmental conservation, we recommend that volunteers and interns stay be minimum one month in order to get the most out of their stay.
