Visit our Eco-Volunteer website

ProAves is a non-profit organisation that was set up in 1998. It was created to protect birds and their habitats in Colombia and the organisation sought to do this through research, conservation actions and community outreach.

Considering that the community is able to lead numerous conservation actions, ProAves has launched its Eco-volunteer Program in its natural reserves; this program will allow conservationists (national or foreigners) to help us carry out specific conservation actions to protect extremely important habitats for critical bird species in Colombia.


ProAves have several objectives with the Ecovolunteer program such as to improve and guarantee the sustainability of the work that is being done in Colombia, allowing the reserves to be run efficiently for years to come. Also being an indispensable feature of the reserves, helping with everything from maintenance to research. We know that the role that volunteers play in conservation cannot be overstated.


Volunteer positions are held at three of our wonderful natural reserves: El Dorado, El Paujil y Reinita Cielo Azul.
