Amazon Conservation Project
Conservation In Ecuador
Conserve and reforest the Amazon rainforest, help communities to develop sustainable vegetable and fruit gardens, and improve the structures and facilities of jungle schools.
The conservation and community project gives volunteers the special opportunity to work with community development, reforestation and help improve the infrastructure of local schools.
The mission of Great Aves (the charity of which You Volunteer is a part of), is to improve education in rural areas. We see this as not just being confined to the classrooms for local students, but an education process for the communities moving from one way of life to another.
Set amongst stunning scenery the Arajuno road weaves its way through the outer Amazon, frequently offering clifftop views over the miles and miles of virtually untouched rainforest.
In between the towns of Arajuno and Puyo are scattered communities of farmers and lumberjacks, the small hamlet of 10 de Agosto and the halfway town of El Triunfo. Aside from the games of volleyball and the frequent fiestas, the towns and communities are yet to yield to the commodification of modern Ecuador.
