Prices and services

Why should you pay being a volunteer?

We are fully independent, we don’t receive any subsidies from the State or any other sources. We don’t ask for any financial contribution from our Peruvian partners. That is why volunteers have to finance the organization, accommodation, food and of course transportation during their stay.

Without the contribution from volunteers, we wouldn’t have the means to hire staff or even to ensure the maintenance of the reserve.
