Mindo Cloud Forest
Volunteers in Mindo Cloud Forest will be living in the worlds number one hot spot for birdwatching. Volunteers will be working with the community on tourism projects and acting as a translator for bird watching tours and at times helping with the conservation of the environment. Mindo is a little bit more like a touristy vacation than other programs so dont expect as much sweat and dirt but do expect to have a great time in one of the most beautiful spots in Ecuador.
Expected Tasks While Volunteering:
– Guiding /translating for tourists
– Help with Bird Watching Tours and Conservation Projects
Why This is Important:
The community has realised that the reason tourists come to Mindo Cloud Forest is because of its pristine forests and large array of birds and animals which means they have to conserve the forest and its wildlife at all costs. Community Tourism projects help guarantee a source of money that does not come from the deforestation and extraction of natural resources from the cloud forest which is one of the only regions left in Ecuador that has not already been destroyed.
