In summer 2013 I volunteered for the NGO “Rainforest of the Austrians”. The organisation works to protect the Esquinas rainforest in the Osa Conservation Area of Costa Rica from logging. I stayed at the La Gamba Field Station, a facility of the University of Vienna, and participated in their reforestation project. When not working I was able to explore the surrounding rainforest, one of the most biodiverse in Central America.
