Your volunteering will help to conserve a part of the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest by participating in tree planting, trail work, research activities, sustainable living and food production as well as some community projects in La Hesperia's Biological Station nature reserve. In collaboration with La Hesperia, our programme partner, their most important goal is to protect part of this amazing ecosystem and to fight against deforestation. However, this fight is not easy and they need as much help as possible, everybody should participate in conservation efforts, because conservation is a shared responsibility.
The station works in natural conservation, combatting deforestation, protecting the existing forest, restoring degraded areas and searching for sustainable activities that enable them to support the reserve and to offer a better way of life for the local community as well as those who work and live at the reserve.
