"Immersed in the middle of Costa Rica nearby a small village called San Miguel, I got to experience first hand with biodiversity data collection, permaculture and reforestation. Contrary to other places in Costa Rica where, for quite a high price, I was only offered to interact with animals kept in refuges' enclosures, at Work With Nature, I encountered real wildlife at their door step: sloths, armadillos, kinkajous, coatis, toucans, oropendolas, tayras, one caïman and so many other multicoloured birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes and insects!

“This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had! The farm was beautiful and truly felt like home even though I was only there for a short period of time (2 weeks). I wish I could have stayed longer. Maarten and Hanneke were so friendly and truly made everyone feel welcome. All the other students and myself became very close very quickly and I made great friends. The work itself was extremely rewarding and felt as though I really was making a difference in the world. One of my favorite projects being done was the reforestation project where I actively participated in re-growing a rainforest (planting trees).
