ABOUT THE CHARITY
This is a not-for-profit conservation organization that protects habitats and species in Paraguay through scientific research and community outreach. They also promote a responsible approach to reserve management where tourists contribute to social, scientific and conservation projects that are designed to have a positive impact on Paraguay.
The volunteer would help create a new profile of this NGO as it currently runs.
