.

On a global level, the number of people interested in volunteering in conservation programs has increased hugely over the past decade. This trend confirms the general public’s growing awareness of critical conservation and community development issues and their determination to actively contribute in order to create positive change. For Mundo Azul it is a thrilling experience to work with people from all over the world, which are willing to dedicate their time and money to important life-impacting programs around the world rather than to another packaged holiday!

In order to take part in Mundo Azul’s Volunteer program you do not have to be a biologist or natural science student. All you need is to be open minded and have a strong interest in nature. You will be trained by our research staff to master all necessary methods of scientific field research, in order to make the program a success and be able to enjoy yourself while doing so.

Participating in Mundo Azul’s conservation programs provides a chance for a unique in-depth experience of Peru´s nature and culture. Therefore, Mundo Azul invites you to become a Conservation Volunteer!

Special announcement

We have currently stopped our field based dolphin research volunteer program. As  a consequence of exposing Peruvian fishermen illegally killing thousands of dolphins for shark bait our staff received death threats and we had to evacuate our ships to a safer location away from the research area. As we currently cannot guarantee for the safety of volunteers in the field we had to stop our dolphin research program till further note. We are currently evaluating a different location and we are hopeful to be able to restart our dolphin research program and welcome volunteers in 2016. If you are interested to come next year, drop us a note at mundoazulorg@gmail.com and we will put you in our list.

Please support our dolphin and shark campaign in order to make clear to everybody threatening us, that we will not give in and stop defending sharks and dolphins.

What we provide: a room to stay

What we do not provide: Travel costs, Food, Salaries

What we require: English as mother tongue

Dolphin photo identification

Join now! According to Mundo Azul´s undercover research between 5,000 and 15,000 dolphins are killed each year illegally, with their meat being used as bait in the peruvian shark fisheries. At least an additional 2,000 dolphins and porpoises are illegally killed for human consumption in Peru each year. Mundo Azul’s aim is  protecting marine wildlife and ecosystems, especially dolphins. As a conservation volunteer for our dolphin conservation program you will contribute directly to this effort by studying and monitoring local populations of coastal bottlenose dolphins with our research team. You will be trained to photo-identify individual dolphins, record data on the location and behaviour of local dolphin populations, and observe other marine wildlife such as sea lions, Humbolt penguins, and marine otters. Don´t miss the opportunity to be at the heart of this exiting marine research program!
