Life in the Atlantic forest

Yes, life this close to the wild can be hard, for sure, but it is the best experience ever. Especially since this forest in the state of Sao Paulo has a diversity that is unprecedented in the world. With all creature comforts at hand and all these kind and welcoming people, the experience of working at FreeWildlifeBrazil Celine was all I could have hoped for. I could use my skills as a film maker and produce some video's for the release centre. There was more than enough archived material for me to edit, and being outside and working with different animals just triggers everyone to add their own sightings to the harddrive.

Incredible place to come too!

The hardest thing about coming to IPBio was leaving. The work is really enjoyable as your new home will be in the middle of the Atlantic forest itself, tucked away from the city life and surrounded by an abundant of wildlife. As everyone has their part in helping learn more about what lies inside the Atlantic forest, my job was to document the work being done by videotaping and photographing the other volunteers research as well as documenting all the activities we do on our free time. Iporanga where IPBio is located is the capital of caves in Brasil, along with exploring multiple caves we got to check out incredible trails with hidden waterfalls and make many new friends along the way. There is so much history in this town as it was one of the first settlement towns in Brasil. Being a photographer I’ve been in heaven with all the nature around me to photograph as well as the history and people Ive meet. The people in this town are one of the nicest people Ive meet, and although many don’t speak English they will make sure to find a way to make you feel welcomed. The people working at IPBio are also all amazing, everyone is so passionate in the work and its really inspiring, and they are really interested in the work your providing as well so its an all great atmosphere and an incredible place to volunteer. If your into adventures and loving what you do everyday look no further, this place will treat you to one of the best experiences in your life and I personally can’t wait to return.
