Promoting sustainable tourism
Para La Tierra promotes Paraguay internationally as an ideal destination for ‘sustainable social tourism’. This new approach to tourism encourages visitors to contribute towards existing social, scientific and conservation projects that are designed to have a positive impact on the country.
Where we work
We’re based at Reserva Natural Laguna Blanca in San Pedro Department. The reserve is uniquely situated at the confluence of three important and globally threatened South American ecoregions: the Upper Paraná Atlantic Forest, the Cerrado, and the Bosque Central of Paraguay. The reserve is centred around a natural artesian lake, Laguna Blanca. Because of this, it harbors an extensive diversity of plants and wildlife, including a number of rare, threatened, and endangered species.
Our main aim is to help to protect these globally endangered habitats and their inhabitants. We do this by a variety of methods including recruiting volunteers to help and working with the local community.>> Read about our projects >> Read and download our scientific publications
We offer a variety of experiences where volunteers can take part in any of our projects. As a volunteer, you can even have a go at all of our projects. Our flexible induction program will give you a taste of everything that’s going on, so you can decide what you like best.
If you’re still studying, or just finished, we can help you gain valuable experience to help you on your career path. As an intern, you can design your own project, which we will help you to do in advance, based on your own personal research interests.>>Keep up-to-date with what we've been up to in our blog
