Costa Rica Programme
We offer 4 Tropical Forests Research and Conservation programmes in Costa Rica, suited to different educational backgrounds and levels.
We currently have several programmes in the Peruvian Amazon, all taking place in the Tambopata National Reserve, designated as such to protect the humid forests located around the Tambopata and Heath river.
Our Brazilian programme is the most extensive to date. we work in 4 proected areas: 3 National Parks and one Extractive Reserve, in projects that range from biodiversity monitoring to communications and data management.
“Our company will inspire and help equip the younger generations to protect the planet and its people, while having a blast learning and exploring.”

Words fromOur Clients
I joined the data management project at Iguazu National Park. I had so many highs and can't think of a low: I made brilliant relationships with the team and did a lot of useful data management work for them. They seemed very happy with my work and were very appreciative, so much so that the team surprised me on the last day with a helicopter flight over the falls. It doesn't get any better than that!!
The work that I was able to carry out in Selva Verde, while taking the Mammals Study internship in Costa Rica, definitely fulfilled my expectations. I was able to use and try out a wide range of sampling and surveying techniques. I have gained valuable experience that I will be able to take with me into my future studies. It was amazing to be able to experience such a great forest with such rich ecosystems and biodiversity. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. This aided greatly with my work and also made my time here more enjoyable!
The programs in Selva Verde, Costa Rica, offer multiple opportunities and allows us to work with experienced people and do field research, applying theory to practice in a specific field. When someone doesn’t have the experience in the field they come to Selva Verde to get the experience to then get the job they want.
Being able to interact with different animals is fascinating! We can combine our theoretical knowledge of taxonomy with biodiversity conservation principles, which we don’t get to do at university, and this is important because we can get a complete analysis and understanding of our related field.
I went to Cazumba Iracema to do my dissertation research. Everyone was so helpful. I always felt welcomed and that people were looking out for me. It was inspiring to see how people describe the forest as a source of life. Green Planet Ventures was hugely responsive both before and during my trip and were excellent at helping with the coordination of everything. I am so happy that I chose this project. It was absolutely brilliant. It was an experience of a lifetime. If you want to know more, take a look at my blog!
