Why volunteer with us? As a Conservation Volunteer with us, you will:
Accommodations: Conservation Volunteers stay at Osa Conservation’s biological station. Accommodations include a bunk bed with mosquito netting, clean sheets and a bath towel, 3 meals a day centered around local Costa Rican cuisine, and refreshing cold water showers (which are appreciated most days in the heat).
Requirements: To volunteer, we ask that you commit to a 2-week minimum stay to account for the 2-day training period, but you can stay for as long as you would like!
If you are interested in staying for 6 months or more, you may be eligible to apply for our Research Field Assistant positions that are offered for more specific opportunities.
If you are visiting for less than 2 weeks, we would love to have you join us as a Conservation Visitor (and you still get to see and do much of what is listed here!)
How to Apply: To apply, please fill out our online Volunteer Application form or email [email protected] with the subject line “Conservation Volunteer in the Osa” with you resume, cover letter and available dates to start your adventure in Costa Rica.
