  Research Opportunities  
  The Explorer’s Inn stands out from other rainforest lodges thanks to the groundbreaking scientific research carried out by the numerous biologists and ecologists who stay with us.

Our collaboration with the scientific community began back in 1978, when the Explorer’s Inn began inviting naturalists and students to volunteer their time at the lodge, in return for room, board and the opportunity to carry out research in the Tambopata rainforest.

Now, roughly one quarter of all our bed/nights are donated to scientists carrying out advanced research (ie at the graduate level and above). Below are details of research opportunities and eligibility.
  Resident Naturalists

The Resident Naturalists (RNs) are the backbone of the research programme at the Explorer’s Inn. At any one time, there are typically five RNs staying at the lodge.

These fellowships are open to researchers doing research at the advanced degree-level (MSc or above) and able to stay for a minimum of three months. RNs are given free room and board and afforded ample time to dedicate to their personal research projects.

In exchange, they help the Inn compile species inventories, monitor ecosystems, wildlife and climate, maintain the lodge’s extensive trail system and interact with our paying guests whose curiosity about the rainforest can often lead to a lively stream of questions over meals at the lodge. RNs are expected to pay for their own transit to and from Puerto Maldonado airport and the Inn takes them between the airport and the lodge.
Research Volunteers

Separately from the Resident Naturalist programme, the Explorer’s Inn also has research opportunities for paying volunteers.

These opportunities are open to students, including undergraduate students, who typically stay at the Inn for two to four weeks. Volunteers are expected to cover their own costs, including bed and board, and spend their time assisting the RNs as well as the lodge administrator and visiting research scientists as needed.
