Volunteers Volunteers

One way to share the lifestyle and activities of Añihue Reserve is through the Volunteer Program. This is how every year during the best weather season, usually November to March, we receive young Chileans and people of other parts of the world to have the opportunity to live for a month as active members of the Reserve, bringing into different areas.

This season December 2011 to March 2012 we are looking for volunteers who want to learn and provide scientific work, specifically, data collection for monitoring and identification of the Chilean and Peale dolphins that swim daily on our shores.

In order to maximize the efficiency of efforts and ensure that volunteer contribution is as helpful as possible, volunteers will be given an introductory course before the start of field activities.

If you are interested in participating as a volunteer, send an email to General Information using our Contact Form. Please include your personal information or curriculum.
