About

Volunteer on this Earthwatch Expedition and hike Puerto Rico’s tropical rainforest. You’ll get to count lizards & frogs, measure trees, and even set up experimental planting plots – all while testing ways to manage sustainability and protect biodiversity.

Earthwatch volunteers will be trained in a variety of tasks, which may include measuring trees, counting lizards or frogs, helping to tag and identify vine species, and helping to set up new experimental plots for planting different tree and shrub species. All the while you'll be hiking through beautiful, tropical rainforest areas, sometimes climbing up steep hillsides, and sometimes following fast flowing rivers. You will also have the chance to join a night expedition into the forest to help count coqui frogs. During your recreational time you will be able to enjoy hikes (if you still have the energy), take dips in nearby rivers, take part in some forest related craft activities, use the project library to learn more about the ecology of the area, or just relax and enjoy an area of rainforest land that very few other people have had a chance to visit. There will also be an opportunity to take a salsa dancing class and to experience the local culture and cuisine.
