Saving the Tijuca Rainforest in Rio: International Volunteers Preserving Nature

Saving the Tijuca Rainforest is one of the most rewarding volunteer projects in Rio de Janeiro. The Magnificent City wouldn’t be the same, if it had not the largest urban rainforest as a green lung to breathe. And of course, there are beautiful hiking trails through the forest and upon the top of the mountains with breathtaking views. So, preserving the Rainforest in Rio is one of the most important ecological volunteer projects to work on!
