According to the website of the Jatun Sacha Foundation their Amazonian reserve is situated at:

The southern bank of the Upper Napo River, at an altitude of 450 meters above sea level, at 1º 04' S, 77º 36' W, in the Napo Province of Ecuador.

This is the edge of Amazonia and was our chance to complete some volunteer work in an area that was always an ambition to visit.

Ants, termites, butterflies, bugs and birds are abundant visitors and easy to see each day during the volunteer activities. Humidity and rain were constant companions during our month long stay in this ecological hotspot.

During your time as a volunteer, you will assist with reforestation and learn about the forest. You might be able to teach English and will enhance your Spanish. You will almost definitely lose weight and may get slightly delirious as your body adjusts to the tropical climate and fresh food but most of all you will have a real adventure.

Check out their web site. It just might change your life.

happy travels
