The Projects Abroad Conservation & Environment project in Costa Rica in Barra Honda National Park is in need of volunteers with a passion for wildlife and protecting the environment. Volunteers will get the chance to work in an incredible environment and contribute to important ongoing work.
As a volunteer on this project, you will be researching local wildlife and doing vital maintenance work. You can help with the conservation of numerous species of bats, reptiles, birds, scarlet macaws, and mammals such as coatis and ocelots. This all takes place under the guidance and supervision of our experienced local staff.
No previous experience is needed to take part in this project. Volunteers are welcome on a gap year, a career break, for university research, or as part of a volunteer summer vacation.
Barra Honda National Park boasts 2,295 acres of tropical dry forest and is about 4 hours’ drive from Heredia and 20 minutes from the nearest town, Nicoya. One of the main attractions for visiting tourists is the fantastic network of underground caves and caverns.
