Four Golden Weeks reviewed by Ann Kirstin
"I spent four weeks volunteering at IPBio during my semester vacations. The atmosphere at the reserve is very warm and welcoming. Everyone is very supportive and it seems like everyone here at the reserve really enjoys what they are doing! I worked with the communications program and created a newsletter for IPBio. I had a lot of freedom realising my own ideas and giving a personal note to the newsletter which I really enjoyed! The nature that surrounds the reserve is very impressing, hills covered in jungle, many caves and waterfalls and a lot more to discover! Therefore, every weekend was fully booked with trips exploring nature’s treasures. Every person that I met here, if it was another volunteer, a staff member or one of the locals, was very open and extremely nice! During the day, I was working on the newsletter, which required me sitting in front of my computer all the time, but sometimes I did help with the tree inventory as well so that I had the possibility to get out in the field! All in all, I would definitely come back to IPBio! I felt really welcomed and I think it’s a great opportunity to contribute to a really good cause and at the same time collecting personal experiences, if it is new language skills, insights in research work, making new friends, exploring new cultures and Mother Earth herself!

Beautiful cloud forest reserve reviewed by Anne Blokhus
"My partner and I spent five months as volunteers at Un Poco del Choco in 2012. The station is in a beautiful location surrounded by so much fascinating wildlife. We worked on creating a trail, trail maintenance, gardening and lots of smaller projects like helping with kids' visits to the station, teaching some English, and general maintenance. If - like us- you love wildlife it is a fantastic place to visit. Our work was often interrupted by the spotting of a new bird species, an armadillo rustling by, curious monkeys watching us or noisy frogs. Nicole and Wilo are passionate about their project and will help to make your stay comfortable and fun. Wilo's cooking is great and the house is very well equipped considering its location (I think some updates have taken place since our visit). I would recommend volunteering here if you enjoy wildlife, peace and quiet, and you aren't afraid of some hard physical work. We loved it and would love to go back one day! "
