Tirimbina Biological Reserve is a not-for-profit organisation created to conserve a portion of tropical rainforest in Costa Rica. Through means of environmental education of local communities and scientific research, this enables us to better understand the complex workings of the forest in order to implement long-term management strategies for the future. Tirimbina Biological Reserve offers the opportunity to be involved in several research projects; the volunteer or intern will have a direct input into the development of scientific knowledge of the tropical rainforest.
