Jatun Sacha

The first time I ever travelled to Ecuador, I visited a very special place – a particular primary rainforest reserve that held the most incredible amount of species I have ever witnessed. The research station I stayed at was called Jatun Sacha. That was many, many years ago. It was such a remarkable place, an experience I could never forget…

Recently, by chance, my path crossed with Silvana Bacca, the Jatun Sacha international volunteer co-ordinator. In all the places, in all the World, Manchester.

For the next talk in our series, on the 13th March, Silvana will be giving a special presentation about Ecuador and the incredible volunteer opportunities now being offered by the Jatun Sacha Foundation. Opportunities that include volunteer, research, and community-based programs in five biological stations located in the Andes, Coastal Region, Amazonian Rainforest, and the Galapagos Archipelago.

Everyone is welcome to attend the talk, which will be held in the Kanaris Theatre at The Manchester Museum between 12 – 1pm.  So, if you’re University staff, a student, or a member of the public, you might want to let your friends and colleagues know about this event. This talk, and the opportunities presented, are open to all. The talk will start at 12.00 prompt and is there is no charge whatsoever.

Why not come along and find out how you could work in one of the most biologically diverse areas in the World.  Who knows where it could lead…
