PARA LA TIERRA RESEARCH AND VOLUNTEER STATION
FAUNA Paraguay is delighted to support the ROLEX AWARD WINNING Para La Tierra Scientific Research and Volunteer station, a non-profit organisation based at Laguna Blanca. With the emphasis on conservation through scientific research, education and community involvement, Para La Tierra is a unique project in Paraguay that offers volunteers the opportunity to work on year-round scientific projects in one of the most under-studied reserves on the planet. With a permanent scientific staff and a picturesque location in unspoilt cerrado and Atlantic Forest habitat, PLT has been designed to stimulate biological research in the area to establish a scientific basis for conservationist claims as to the importance of this newly declared reserve.
Para La Tierra is a not for profit biological station staffed by professionals and assisted by a constant stream of ecologically-minded volunteers with one stated aim, to help conserve natural habitats in one of South America´s most under-studied countries through science and education.
"To assist in the conservation of natural habitats in Paraguay through the study of its biodiversity and highlight the local and international importance of the reserve by widespread dissemination of its findings"
