As the most biodiverse country on earth, Brazil's an ideal place to get experience in environmental conservation. Past Fellows have worked with NGOs educating locals and tourists about environmental issues, and with rescue and rehabilitation centers for a variety of animals including otters, penguins, exotic birds, turtles, and monkeys.
"I guide visitors in a one-hour tour that teaches about marine turtles and raises awareness of environmental conservation. Giving the tours (in Portuguese!) is the most challenging part of my apprenticeship and also the most rewarding."
