In 2022, we will host 3 cohorts: Cohort #1 Arrive May 31-June 2 / Depart August 9-11 Cohort #2 Arrive July 26-28 / Depart October 11-13 Cohort #3 Arrive September 27-29 / Depart December 13-15 Cost: $1,500 ($300 non-refundable) - Funds cover your food and lodging (and more) at the field station and support our research and conservation efforts.

Qualifications
Many of our volunteers already have or are working towards a BA or BS in the biological or environmental sciences, but this is not a requirement. The priority traits for volunteers are a willingness to work in isolated conditions, the ability to solve problems independently, and previous work or travel experience in tropical countries is an advantage. A dedication to a positive and respectful working environment is vital.
