Various options for a unique experience are offered by the NGO. The Wildlife, Seaturtle, Farming and Restoration programms offer volunteer opportunities for everyone. The staff and the reseaech teams are being lead by highly deccorated proffesionals which are also very friendly. Overall the surroundings and the place are incredible for its wildlife and dense vegetation. You will encounter wildlife on a daily basis!

I spent 3 days here but wish it had been 3 weeks. The amount of wildlife and biodiversity in this area is just unbelievable. The station accommodates ecotourists for about $90 a day which includes three meals and access to all of the trails which are amazing. The people at this station are very nice and friendly. I stayed on the main campus which is pretty basic (no a/c, no hot water, virtually no wifi, no electricity at night after the solar cells run dry, howler monkeys screaming all night long...). If you are looking for more luxury, there is also an ecolodge option which is a bit fancier. However, if you don't mind roughing it, the main campus allows more interaction with interns, staff, and volunteers. While there, I saw 3 kinds of monkeys, lots of frogs and lizards, and tons of flowers and birds. There is also a pretty beach. It's a neat place and your stay helps to fund important research.

I spent 3 weeks volunteering here and loved every minute. As a volunteer, you really get an opportunity to be helpful and to explore many of the wonderful programs they run here, from the organic farm to biodiversity monitoring to reforestation. There are many diverse trails to hike, and the sunset at the rocks is a definite highlight. Highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of staying at OSA Conservation as part of Niagara Colleges BeWorldReady program in February of 2020. To say this is experience has been life-changing is an understatement. Being able to witness first hand the incredible work these researchers and volunteers do was amazing. They ARE the future of ecosystem restoration. In addition to learning about sustainable practices, ecosystem restoration, and turtle monitoring, we got to see countless beautiful and magestic animals. The food is INCREDIBLE. I can almost guarantee you'll be asking for at least one recipe during your stay. Everyone who works here is so kind and are willing to help you learn. This is THE place to be if you want to learn about how we can save the planet, and even get involved in several of those efforts. It has been an amazing stay at OSA and I reccomend staying here for all.

The Piro biological station has one of the best rainforest trail systems in the area with a fantastic abundance and diversity of wildlife. The biologists and conservationists are doing fascinating and important work and are both informative and eager to share. Facilities and staff are excellent as well. A special place to be whether as a volunteer or day guest!
