A propos de l'oraganisation localeConservation & Environmental Awareness. - Description: This is a grass roots organization located in the small village Quebradas, which is located near to the town of San Isidro (744 meters above sea level) in El General Valley. This valley is surrounded by high mountains such as Cerro de la Muerte (3491 meters above see level) and the highest mountain of Costa Rica, Chirripó, at 3820 meters. The average temperature lies around 24 degrees Celsius, and the precipitation is 3800 mm a year. The weather in the region is humid and, although the rainy season lasts from May until December, there will probably be some showers during the dry season as well. Quebradas has some indigenous heritage from the pre-columbine times, and some traces from those cultures can still be found in the community and the region. The town of Quebradas was founded by farmers. Today, many people work in the closest town, San Isidro. They also make a living from agricultural products such as coffee, sugar cane, fruits and vegetables. The Biological Center of Quebradas is managed by FUDEBIOL (Fundación para el Desarrollo del Centro Biológico Las Quebradas), which is a non-profit grass roots organization launched in 1989. Their mission is to stop the deforestation of the Quebradas River basin, which is the source of drinking water for the whole town of San Isidro and most of the region of Pérez Zeledón. In the Center, they have also built an educational hub. The project site is located 3km uphill from the community of Quebradas, between 1 000 and 2 500 meters above sea level. Today the main goals of FUDEBIOL are: - to preserve the basin of Las Quebradas River, - to develop environmental education for children and the community, - to establish various sustainable systems in order to guarantee the conservation of flora, fauna and water resources in the area, - to become financially independent through ecotourism, - to do research and to promote the support on conservation. The project is especially proud of the diversity of birds and butterflies that live in their forest. They have already constructed a butterfly farm to show all the different types of butterflies for the enjoyment of the visitors. Now, they also want to improve the birdwatching opportunities in the area. Experts suspect that there are about 200 different birds in the protected area. The Biological Center wants to observe the habits of these birds in oorder to create leaflets about the types of birds that can be found in the area during the different times of the year. You can also find white-face monkeys and other small mammals of the tropic. The Biological Center also has a garden with medical plants, and they produce organic compost. In addition, within the 36 hectares of the Reserve you can find a system of 4 trails from which 3 have signs for educational guided tours.

A propos du travail de volontairePossible tasks for the volunteer: - to maintain the garden of medical plants, - to maintain the Butterfly Garden, - to maintain the channel around the lagoon, - to maintain the trails inside the Reserve, - to clean and to maintain green areas, - to make new informative wooden signs for the trails, - to plant flowers and others on the access road, - to paint and to maintain the buildings at the entrance of the Reserve. -- Required skills and interests of the volunteer: - to have the maturity to work following the internal rules in a responsible way, - to work on hard duties such as constructing and maintaining of trails, - to live under simple conditions and be willing to eat the typical food, probably rice and beans with other local vegetables everyday (the volunteer will receive three meals a day), - to have the maturity to work in a foreign country and adapt to a different culture with different manners, - to be ready to walk uphill for 45 minutes every morning in order to get to the project and walk back to the host family in town after finishing work every afternoon.

A propos du logement sur placeThere are several families in the community that are regularly hosting volunteers in town. They have a rotating system to host the volunteers, as the project wants to give the families equal opportunities and benefic from the volunteer program. This means that the host families of the volunteers are assigned by the community. All the houses have electricity, drinking water (as well as the biological center), telephones, and will provide the volunteer with three meals a day.

A propos de l'oraganisation localeThe Lodge is located close to the little town of Bijagua. The community of Bijagua is very special and can be described as "in between" in many aspects. First of all, it is located between two volcanoes: the Tenorio and the Miravalles. It also lies between two provinces of Costa Rica: Guanacaste and Alajuela, and the two different cultures of these regions can both be found in the community: the one from the mountains of Alajuela and the one of the lowlands of Guanacaste. In the mountains to the west of the community lies the Continental Division of Waters; which leads the rivers either into Pacific or Caribbean Sea. Being located very close to the border of Nicaragua, this can be seen as another in between', as the community is influenced by both Costa Rican and Nicaraguan culture as well. - The project was launched in 1994 when 12 families decided to found the Bijagua Association of Agricultural Producers in order to improve the life quality of their families by creating new job opportunities. The association decided to protect some of the forest in the region of the Tenorio Volcano (which is where their farms are located) in order to start ecotourism projects. This gave them an alternative to the deforestation of land for farming. They also want to start an environmental education center to show more people the importance of preserving nature in the region. The total protected area is 110 hectares of land surrounding Tenorio Volcano National Park. - Within the protected area, they have a system of hanging bridges through the rainforest, the longest being 105 meters long and 37 meters high. There are also trails and facilities for visitors at the lodge. They currently have a lot of plans on how to make the project more attractive for visitors.

A propos du travail de volontairePossible tasks for the volunteer : to maintain the trails using natural materials that they find in the region; those trails have to be in good condition to allow the visitors' access to the forest in a safe and comfortable way, to maintain the gardens around the lodge, to maintain the hanging bridges, to repair old or broken signs along the trails or creation of new signs, to help reforestate the areas around the Reserve using local trees from their nursery, to update databases of trees in the nursery-greenhouse, Optional: to do communal work for the local people when required depending on activities, to work in the restaurant helping with the cooking or the service to tourists as well as helping with the cleaning of the lodge. *Please note that you will work on whatever is most important at the moment. You are expected to assume any of the tasks if necessary.

A propos du logement sur placeYou are going to live in the lodge where also the tourists are hosted, in the cabins for the volunteers are located besides the lodge. You will share a lot of time with the family who run the lodge, giving you a great opportunity to get to know Costa Rican culture. The water is drinkable; there is electricity, hot water in the showers and a nice view. You will eat in the restaurant of the lodge where the other workers eat. The food is delicious; still be prepared that it will be mostly rice and beans all the time. You will have access to a washing machine. The lodge offers tours to nearby waterfalls, horse riding excursions, and treks to tourists. The volunteers will benefit from these tours at cheaper price if they wish to go.

A propos de l'oraganisation localeThe Carlisa Para ­so rescue center has 100 acres of forest, at the beginning there was no rescue center or vet clinic responsible for wild animals in the area. So the owner of the reserve was encouraged by the Ministry of Environment to start an Animal Rescue Center.

A propos du travail de volontaireThe animals do not belong to this centre, but to the state of Costa Rica. They only have them in adoption to reach a goal: their release in a safe environment. The animals come to this centre for reasons such as forfeiture to be caged as pets since childhood, by accident, or having lost their habitat and found in urban environments or roads. Their mission is to have them no more than six months in closed, during which time they conduct clinical tests to check their health, balance their diet and assesses their chances of reintegration to the wild life. Around 30% are ready for release after 2 or 3 months of observation as they are not yet tamed. Not only is release, they also have to readapt them to feed themselves, monitor not to invade rural areas for food (as they can be haunted as the risk for neighbours´animals), and check that their rehabilitation in the natural habitat is going well. Another 50% have difficulties in their rehabilitation into the wild, so they stay with them between six months and one year (or in some rare cases more). After 6 months being in cage we always transfer them to the semi enclosures -freedom, where we teach them to look for food, not to be hunted by other animals, etc The remaining 20% of the animals they receive are not fit to live in total freedom, for being so domesticated that may even lose their appetite when separated from humans, others can get into depression and understand their situation as abandonment. They try to readapt them as the other animals, but, in the end, they tend to stay in areas close to the enclosures which prevents them from being hunted and caged as pets. They are free, but they are not released into the forest.

A propos du logement sur placeAccommodation and food are provided.
