Help people and planet by sending me on 3 week volunteer venture at Congal Reserve, Ecuador, working on community and conservation efforts!

I'm setting out to make the world a better place.

Across the globe, industrialized farms have devastated ecosystems and water supplies causing physical and economic harm to small communities, not to mention depriving our planet and ourselves of vital sources of biodiversity, useable land, and potential for medical and environmental breakthroughs that may sustain us indefinitely.

I intend to help by volunteering at the Congal Reserve, part of the Jatun Sacha Foundation. I will be there for 3 weeks starting in September.

The Congal reserve is "170 hectares (425 acres) ... an example of natural resource management integrating sustainable acuaculture, agroforestry and range management with conservation."

I see volunteering here as helping people help the planet help people.
