Positions: Science Communication Intern in Costa Rica
Type: 10-week volunteer / work exchange with room and board, more (see below)
Organization: Monteverde Butterfly Gardens
Location: near Monteverde, Costa Rica, Central America / Latin America 

Want to spend 10 weeks learning and teaching about insects and arachnids at the longest running insect exhibit in Costa Rica with their Canadian director @Brynascience?

The Monteverde Butterfly Gardens has been teaching people about insects and arachnids for 30 years! We use a fun and hands-on approach to teaching people about how cool bugs really are. Volunteers from all over the world are trained to guide people through 4 butterfly habitats, a leaf cutter ant colony and a collection of live invertebrates from Costa Rica. The Monteverde Butterfly Gardens works hard every day to develop understanding and tolerance towards the many different arthropods we have living on the planet!

Love bugs?

You don’t need experience or prior knowledge of insects; we will train you to do 1-hour English tours through our gardens and insect collection. Your work day starts at 7:45am and ends around 5pm. Other than tours, you will work on facility maintenance, butterfly breeding, and tours! You can expect to give 1-4 tours a day and work 5 days per week. 

To Apply

Email Bryna a resume and cover letter telling us why you want to volunteer with us and why you would be a great intern. Please put your availability and the position you are applying for in the email title. Please indicate you saw this posting at GoodWork.
