Opportunities for Spring and Summer 2018 are now available. BFREE volunteer internships are for all ages and last anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months. Volunteers have the opportunity to select between working with the critically endangered Central American River Turtle at our captive breeding and research facility or with our organic shade-grown cacao agroforest used to promote the expansion of migratory bird and other wildlife habitats. 

Start dates must begin on a Monday and end on a Friday. Transportation to and from the field station is up to each individual. Recommendations and support on travel is provided. A small daily fee to cover accommodations and meals is required.

BFREE Biological Research Station Volunteers

Since we broke ground in 1995, over 100 interns and long-term volunteers have stayed at our tropical research station in the middle of one of Central America‚Äôs largest remaining tracts of intact rainforest (over a million acres).  Not only have volunteers benefited from the unique experience of living and working in the tropical rainforest, but their creative contributions and hard work have helped tremendously with our wildlands conservation, sustainable living, and environmental research and education efforts.
