The puma mission in Argentina's Cordoba region

The NGO you'll be working with is dedicated to protecting the environment. Its aim is to make people more aware of their responsibility towards nature.
The first mission is to educate communities about the condition of the puma, which has become an endangered species in the Cordoba region and throughout Argentina. Projects have been set up by the NGO to restore the fauna and flora of the puma's natural habitat through education and research programs.
The NGO's ultimate goal is to restore the mountain range that has been affected by forest fires and destroyed by urbanization. Restoration will enable the integration of endemic plant and animal species.
The reserve takes in animals found in traps, or victims of exotic animal trafficking. Most of them are released back into their natural environment, while others remain in the reserve for convalescence.

The role of ecovolunteers in Argentina

  • Guide visitors through the reserve, conferences and workshops. They'll also have to explain the region's environmental challenges.
  • Help control exotic species and manage seed banks of various native species
  • Animal welfare (care, feeding, etc.)
  • Take part in animal studies, helping investigators and checking cameras.
  • Participate in site maintenance through trail maintenance, cleaning, waste management for recycling.
