Conservation & Research
Help protect the delicate balance of nature by researching and monitoring endangered species and habitats. Past volunteers have been tasked with observing feeding behavior of spider monkeys, toucans and other tropical species and mapping fruit tree distribution based on wildlife habitats; beach patrols to protect the nests of leatherback, green and hawksbill sea turtles; construction and monitoring of turtle egg hatcheries.
ISV volunteers also help support alternative sustainable tourism and income generation by participating in family home stays.
