Para La Tierra

About Para La Tierra

Fundación Para La Tierra is a non profit organization dedicated to the conservation of threatened habitats and fauna in Paraguay through scientific investigation, community engagement and environmental education.

Para La Tierra is dedicated to the conservation of fragile habitats in Paraguay through scientific research, community engagement, and environmental education. We are based in the beautiful city of Pilar - The City of Birds - and work across Southern Paraguay, from the expansive Ñeembucú Wetland Complex to the endangered Atlantic Forest.

At Para La Tierra, we specialize in training students and graduates in the skills they need to take the next step in their career, either towards higher education or into the job market. Over the past decade, we have hosted over 1,500 interns, each of whom has made a tangible contribution to the conservation of the fragile species and understudied ecosystems of Paraguay.

We are now very excited to also offer remote learning opportunities designed to empower the next generation of conservationists, educators, and scientists, no matter where they are in the world!

If you’re still studying, or just graduated, 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 and skills. You can choose between conservation biology, community education and museum studies, or get experience in all three.
