Are you interested in otter conservation? We are looking for otter-loving volunteers to help with our population assessment of the Asian Small-claw otter in Palawan. Classified as a “biodiversity hotspot” and home to almost 25% of all the animal species that live in the Philippines, Palawan really is an ideal place for wildlife enthusiasts to volunteer.
The project will involve surveying important otter habitats in Puerto Princesa (Palawan) to enable us to assess the population status of the Small-claw otters.
The surveys conducted during your stay may vary depending on our current research priorities. Generally, your obligations as a volunteer will include:
We ask that volunteers make a contribution to the project each month to cover living expenses. Students and Filipinos may be entitled to a discounted rate. Your contribution will cover the following expenses::
LAMAVE does not cover your expenses necessary to reach Palawan, visas, insurance or other leisure expenses. Please note that all volunteers are required to have health insurance for the duration of their stay at the project.
Interested individuals may send their CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying OTTER in the email subject.
