PERU JUNGLE CONSERVATION PROGRAM
I have been offered a placement on the Peru program for 2 weeks beginning in October 2013.
On this program, i will be working in a National park in the Amazonrain forest, and will help with all aspects of maintaining the park, including orchid planting, bamboo removal, teaching at the local school and creating an inventory of species with local staff and researchers.
The work i will be doing is completely voluntary, with volunteers having to pay for all their own expenses. The program package to volunteer in Peru for 2 weeks is US$1697, which covers volunteers in-country expenses such as accommodation and daily meals. In addition volunteers are responsible for arranging their airfares, entry visa, vaccinations and insurance.
I have always wanted to give something back, and cannot think of a better way than helping those less fortunate than ourselfs, and by partisipating on this program it will give me the opportunity to do this.
All the money i can raise will be going to a very good cause, and anything over this amount i will donate to the school i will be helping at to help fund their education.
