For nearly thirty years, Las Casas de la Selva has hosted volunteers from all over the planet, either involved in the total operations & management of Las Casas, carrying out particular tasks, or assisting us with scientific research.
Tropic Ventures Sustainable Forestry Project relies on the work of dedicated volunteers. Most all accomplishments here are the result of the vision, and resourcefulness of volunteers and researchers. If you are ready for a life challenge, interested in your personal development, and feel that you have useful skills and proficiency, or perhaps would like to learn how to do something, hold a genuine love of the natural world, and want to live with other people to experience life in this biome please contact us. We welcome you to participate in the project’s total system as a volunteer. Contact us, we are very open. Please take the time to peruse the information of what to expect and what we expect from you.
Individuals of any age, over 18, interested in volunteering, are invited to apply for up to a three week stay. Longer stays must be approved beforehand, and will usually only be granted to returning volunteers who, having volunteered in the past, are aware of what it is like to volunteer at Tropic Ventures.
Travel arrangements, visas, health and travel insurance, etc., are the responsibility of the participant. Upon application you will be provided with full details.
