Help protect Peru’s famous citadel and environs.
Each trip varies, depending on the current needs of local authorities. Past trips included:
- helping the National Institute of Culture repair the Inca Trail
- helping archaeologists restore cultural sites
helping the National Service for Protected Natural Areas
- by planting native trees
- removing exotic species
- interviewing travelers about their experiences in order to improve visitor management
Work sites vary in altitude from 8,000 to 11,000 feet, making this challenging for some, though past volunteers were a wide range of ages and abilities.
You must be able to hike with a day pack, move soil or rock with a shovel, pull unwanted vegetation, or carry stones. As always, your education and safety are priorities.
Work at this elevation may be challenging, but so are the rewards! Working alongside local park rangers to protect this archeological treasure brings a terrific sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Conservation VIP, in partnership with REI Adventures, is pleased to offer this exciting opportunity.
