Internships

Our internship programs are designed to fully immerse participants in Amazonian ecology and cultures while offering the opportunity to collaborate with local counterparts on a variety of projects. We offer internships in different focus areas - ranging from public health to culinary arts!

Applications are accepted on a year-round basis, and placement dates can be flexible except for in the Summer. We require a minimum of 1 month and recommend 2 to 3 months which is what most interns opt for (flexibility for a minimum of 2 weeks depending on intern’s qualifications).

Our internships are located in the Napo region of Ecuador, and there are many opportunities for travel and field research outside of the region. Participants will stay with local host families during their program.
