Current volunteering opportunities:
Neotropical Primate Conservation (NPC) is looking for someone to do a botanic investigation in the La Esperanza area in Amazonas, Peru. The project currently involves investigation work on mammals and especially primates, environmental education, reforestation, and we are trying to develop economic alternatives for the people. The main aim is to form a community run conservation reserve. For more information look at www.neoprimate.org
NPC is looking for someone to do a plant census, probably focusing on primate food sources, help creating a botanical garden in an existing patch of forest, and train local students who will be coming to work with them.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Hortus botanicus Leiden, The Netherlands
Cycads of the Hortus botanicus Leiden
The Hortus botanicus has a large collection of Cycads with very many historical specimens. All specimens have been properly documented and photographed. We are looking for a volunteer who is interested to write a garden guide to this group based on information already gathered at the garden. An example for another important plant group (major tree species) is present.
Contact Paul J.A. KeÃŸler at email@example.com if you are interested.
