Volunteering In The Mayan Jungle
What Is It All About?
The volunteer program developed by Blue Core is part of the Wildlife and Environmental Education Unit (UVISEA).
UVISEA is a project that promotes the adoption of better agricultural and forestry productive practices; we seek to improve the health of the ecosystems, with reforestation programs and a program for monitoring, reception, recovery, reproduction and releasing of wildlife after rehabilitation. In addition, UVISEA implements workshops to strengthen biocultural identity and disseminate the importance of environmental services and the sustainable use of natural resources.
Is This Volunteer Program Right For Me?
Our volunteer program is designed for those who want to «learn by doing» and who also enjoy life in the midst of nature. Whether they are students looking to strengthen their professional training, or individuals seeking new life experiences.
