Voluntariado en el Amazonas

I work with the Taricaya Research Center in the Peruvian Amazon, and am
looking for opportunities to speak with students about volunteer
opportunities in conservation biology. The Taricaya Research Center is
situated about two hours down the Madre de Dios River from the frontier
town of Puerto Maldonado, Peru and offers a unique experience in the heart
of the Amazon rainforest. The newly built lodge has a capacity for 32
volunteers and is exclusively run by Projects Abroad a leading volunteer
placement organization, founded in 1992, which sends over 3000 people
abroad every year.

I'd like to present some of these opportunities to students that might be
interested in living and working in the Peruvian Amazon. I graduated from
Austin College in 1999 with a B.A. in Biology. Upon graduating, I had the
opportunity to live and work in the Peruvian Amazon for a year and can
speak firsthand about the knowledge and experience that can be gained
through an opportunity like this, regardless of whether or not students
chose conservation biology as a vocation (I'm an environmental chemist

Please let me know if anyone would be interested in learning more about
volunteering at the Taricaya Research Center. You can find more
information at www.projectsabroadperu.org.

Thanks for your time. Feel free to email me if you have questions or
would like to discuss further.
