Few experiences can affect teens like international travel. Oakland Zoo has a history of inspiring teens with trips to exotic locations such as Borneo, Guatemala, Peru and Madagascar.
We are very excited to join Ecology Project International (EPI) for an incredible ANDES TO AMAZON ECOLOGY PROGRAM in beautiful Ecuador! After arriving in Quito, we will travel up the Andes mountains, down to the Amazon basin and back to Quito. We will experience a diversity of climates, ecosystems and altitudes all while studying some of the most unique creatures that live in these extreme habitats. We will learn about the Kichwa culture, volunteer with the native plant nursery and learn about sustainable forest resource management.
To be eligible to participate in this trip, you must be a current Teen Wild Guide or ZooCamp Teen Assistant in good standing. To find out more about how you can become a teen volunteer and take advantage of these and other opportunities, please visit our Teen Programs page.
