Main activity
. Creation of the project and the association
'Eco Volunteer International'
. Creation of a greater association for the
protection of the biodiversity in the world
My story
I am passionate for wildlife, for nature and for
the discovery of the world and the cultures.
After having studied photography with the wish
to be a wildlife photographer, I have traveled
around Europe and overseas. Those journeys
guided me to new perspectives. I realized then,
that my real wish was to actively protect what
passionate me : the preservation of the
biodiversity in the world.

Eco Volunteer International is a French
association of law 1901 of which the purpose is
to intervene for the protection of the animal and
environmental life in the world as well as to
strengthen the link between human beings and
It acts thanks to projects of ecovoluntary
services, communication and raising awareness.
'Eco-volunteer' is any act of volunteering that
aims to protect the environment and to conserve
animal species and natural habitats.
The project 'EVI Latin America'
The approach of 'Eco Volunteer International'
begins with the project 'EVI Latin America' and
a course of 6 to 8 months from Argentina to
Ecuador beginning the 28th of January 2015.
The EVI Latin America project sees itself led
by an ecovoluntary united journey which
consists in bringing a help to associations and
in making sensitive about the biodiversity in
Latin America.

Foreword : the situation in the world
Animals species in danger

Environment and populations

In the last edition of the red list ¹ (2013.1 Version)
presented by IUCN², from the 70.294 species
assessed, 20.934 are classified as threatened with
worldwide extinction.

The protection of the environment is essential
to the balance of the Earth : its waters, its
forests, its atmosphere. Still, the destruction of
the nature has grown considerably and is almost


. Tropical forests:

13% 25% 31% 33% 34% 41%

Percentage of threatened species in the world


Sharks and ray

Coral reef



In term of biological diversity, tropical forests
are extremely important to the ecosystem:
between 50% and 80% of living species,
animals and plants, are found in tropical rain
forests. Yet, millions of hectare are destroyed
by deforestation each year, 13 millions
according to the FAO³. This brings to the
disappearance of vast resources, fertile lands,
habitats, to the transmission of infectious
diseases and to the release of 25% of global
emissions of greenhouse gases.
. Populations :

Over-hunting causes the disappearance of entire

species in deplorable conditions and often
Habitat destruction changes the environment
in which animals and plants disappear, unable
to evolve.
The trade and domestication of wild animals
actively reduce the natural spread of species and
is heavily involved in the loss of the
A "crisis" in the biodiversity has always been
considered beneficial to it but the pace of
species extinction is now 100 to 1000 times
higher than the natural rate.
The ecosystem lives in cycle:one species is
necessary to another. An imbalance causes
what is called co-extinction, affecting animal
life, human life and environment.

Nearly 1.6 billion people, or over 25% of the
world population, derive their livelihoods from
forests and 60 million of indigenous people
depend almost entirely on forests. Around the
world and into areas where people live in
harmony with the nature, degradation of the
environment affects considerably the quality of
human life.
. Air, earth and water :
A global warming is increasing very rapidly in
comparison to climate changes generally
observed over the years, and the pollution
invades natural spaces. Numbers of plants and
animal species that can not adapt to it are
already condemned. On the whole planet, 60%
of natural environments have been degraded
over the past 50 years.

The 'EVI Latin America' project

In addition, according to the FAO and the
community "Zero-deforestation" ¹ :

The project 'EVI Latin America ' consist in
making an eco-volunteer travel around South
America. This event occurs in the context of the
action 'Eco Volunteer International', which will
intervene in the help of animals, environment,
population and nature link.

. The Amazon suffer the loss of
42.510.000.000m² of forest cover per year

The situation
Latin America has a wide biodiversity thanks,
mostly, to the presence of the Amazon forest.
But the environment on the whole territory
needs to be protected.

. Ecuador has the world record with an annual
deforestation rate of 1.7%
. Between 1492 and 1970, 1% of the Amazon
rain forest has been destroyed ; during the past
35 years, 14% has been reduced, which is a
200 times higher deforestation rate
. Five hundred years ago, between 5 and 7
million Indians lived in the Amazon. Now, no
more than a million of them can be counted
Mission of the project

Unfortunately it is threatened more and more
each day, mainly due to the greed of
individuals, governments or companies that
wishes to establish "profitable" sites and that act
in opposition to the respect of biodiversity,
wildlife and local populations.

. Participate to the protection of wildlife and
environment in Latin America
. Strengthen the link between humans and
. Support local populations
. Make people aware of the importance of the
conservation of the biodiversity

Eco-volunteer travel and support
.Volunteering in five associations
. Meeting the local people
. Call for participation by donation and volunteering with the associations encountered
. Links to the association's websites and current projects
Reports and articles (with agreements)
. Photographs and videos in the heart of organizations and surrounding areas
. Interview from volunteers and assets
. Creation of educative and informative articles in order to preserve the biodiversity
Creation of a "community"
. Relation with a school²
. Setting up a space for interactive exchange via Internet
. Raising awareness on the importance of the improvement of our behavior to protect
the biodiversity in Latin America

The course
The steps

Step 3. Peru

January 28th 2015 will mark the beginning of a
course of 6 to 8 months in Latin America. It
will start in Argentina, and end in Ecuador. It is
subject to improvement depending on the
experience there.

It is in Peru that I shall explore an additional
aspect of the project : the valuation of the
Amazonian native populations. I will follow the
engineer team of the organization Latitude Sur
whom work for the protection of the native
culture and a solidarity tourism.

The course is presented in four main steps :
Step 4. Ecuador
Step 1. Chile/Argentina
The first step of the journey is a travel through
Argentina and Chile from north to south for
about two and a half months. This will highlight
the variety of the nature existing in those two
countries, that should be preserved. I will make
a volunteer program in the natural park Torres
del Paine, in Chile.

I will make two volunteer missions in Ecuador
within refuges for animals mistreated and
removed from their natural spaces.
Furthermore, I will go to the discovery of the
Galapagos islands, constituted by a luxuriant
fauna and flora, in a real need for protection.

Step 2. Bolivia

Optional. Step 5. Costa Rica

The next step of the course takes place in
Bolivia, where I will do my first two volunteer
missions in associations that work for the
protection of mistreated wild animals, removed
from their natural habitats. I will especially
create a report at the heart of the Amazon rain

If I have time and sufficient ways to widen this
course, I would go for a few weeks in Costa
Rica to show its impressive biodiversity as well
as the many opportunities of volunteering.


Associations related to the project


AMA Torres Del Paine


Senda Verde

AMA Torres del Paine National Park is located
between the Andes and the steppe of Patagonia,
Chile. With a surface area of approximately
200.000 hectares, the park was created in 1959
and declared biosphere reserve on the April 28th
of 1978 by UNESCO. It hosts more than a
hundred species of birds, twenty five species of
mammals, including various endangered and
visible only in certain sectors, such as the deer,
the South Andean and the puma.

Senda Verde is a non-governmental
organization created by Vicky Ossio and
Marcelo Levy in 2003. Located in the Yungas
region of Bolivia, it is dedicated to
environmental education and to the support of
sick, mistreated or abandoned animals. I will do
two weeks* of volunteerism there.

AMA Torres del Paine is an association created
in 2004 for the protection of the environment
within the Torres del Paine national park. Its
objective is to ensure the development of a
sustainable tourism and the preservation of the
biodiversity. I will follow there a volunteer
program of two weeks.

The community Inti Wara Yassi was founded in
1992 by Juan Carlos Antezana. The latter works
with more than 50 species, recovered from
illegal trafficking. It has three shelters in
Bolivia : the park " Machia" in Cochabamba,
created in 1996 ; "Ambue Ari" near Santa Cruz,
purchased in 2002 ; " Jacj Cuisi" north of La
Paz, recently put in place. I will do three weeks
* of volunteerism there.


Inti Wara Yassi



Los Monos Selva y Vida

The Los Monos Selva y Vida (The monkeys, the
forest and the Life) was created in 2007 by a
Swiss couple, Veronique GRAND and Yvan
BOUVIER. This center of care and hospitality
of wildlife is located on a hectare of primary
forest, near the town of Puyo, Ecuador.
The center keep animals in order to offer them
the best conditions of life when their trauma is
too big to ensure a rehabilitation. The refuge is
particularly open to visitors in order to
sensitize the public to the respect of nature and
wildlife. I will do ten days* of volunteerism

Latitud Sur

Latitud Sur is a Peruvian, Ecuadorian and
Mexican non-governmental organization, by its
legal locations in each of these countries. It is in
partnership with the French association
ARUTAM, which has been a member of the
network "Alliance for the Planet" from 2006 to
2010. The organization acts for the protection of
the environment, for sustainable development,
as well as for the health, education, and the
preservation of indigenous culture and
solidarity tourism. I will follow their team of
engineers during a week.


Merazonia is a rescue and rehabilitation center
for animals to the fringes of Mera, in Ecuador.
It is involved in monkeys, kinkajous, feline,
other mammals and parrots injured or seized in
various trades. The center also places a great
importance on the educational aspect by
welcoming students and researchers from the
international. I will do four weeks * of
volunteerism there.

*Estimated time






Make people aware of the alarming situation for
the biodiversity in Latin America and of the
importance of our role ; make the interest

Help associations to improve the success in
their work, to be more amply known and to lead
to positive results.



Exchange an enriching experience, allow each
to discover the diversity of Latin America and
its wildlife, environment and culture.

Decrease the threats on animal species and on
the environment, improve the connection
between humans and nature.




The social networks

Large public

The project Eco Volunteer International is
active on social networks from the most
relevant of the moment:

The Internet Site
The website, currently under construction, will be
the main interface of the project. Through it will
be exposed :


General + detailed overview of the project


Course and real-time tracking

Reports ; photographs, videos and articles


Associations and links to their web sites
Informative chronicles and follow of

Possibilities of participation ; interactive
Medias and conferences
Partners and their implications

A monthly newsletter will be offered to all
visitors of the website and on social networks.
With this bonus, a privileged relationship will
grow with the people that follow the project.
It will contain news, a chronicle about the
theme of the month, the "photograph of the
month" and unpublished information.

The project is carried out in the framework of
solidarity travel across the world. It is about a
subject which target a large public including the
very popular community of "world travelers".
This type of action involves the interest of
various media: local and regional presses,
blogs, television
That is why I wish to share the action through
this support, in order to extend the influence of
the project and the association 'Eco Volunteer
International'. I will offer conferences with
schools, salons and companies.

Evaluate the impact of the project
Estimate the influence for the associations
One of the fundamental roles of the project is to
give a real support to associations. After the
course, the question will arise therefore: "What
influence has had the project EVI Latin
America for the associations? "
To respond, will be evaluated :
The evolution of the rate of influence on the
website of an association
Evaluate if there is a visible evolution of its
visits, since its presentation through the project.
Estimate the number of new volunteers
involved with associations
Probing the origin of the involvement of
volunteers and estimate the evolution of the
queries during and after the project
Estimate the rate of donations received by
the associations
Probing the motivations of donors and the
evolution of donations during and after the

Some examples of indicators used :
OVH is a website host that I is used for the
project website. With OVH, an access to the
statistics and all the data previously cited is
possible, which already can give an idea of the
influence of the approach.
Klout is one of the most relevant tools to
determine the influence of a site on the social
networks. This interface measures the
influence but also can compare within the
different networks.
Friendorfollow add an interesting element in
the very popular social network 'Twitter'.
This tool offers to rate and make the difference
between the real "fans" (no private connection
with the project or myself) and the "friends"
(private connection with the project or myself).

Estimate the influence obtained via Internet
Evaluate the influence of the project with its
website and social networks permits to have a
specific outline of the impact and to work in
order to improve it.
Must then be assess :
. The traffic: number of visitors, number of
visited pages etc.
. The referencing : search engines and
keywords, ranking on Google etc.
. The follow up : links via other Internet sites,
popular pages etc.

Facebook is the most influential social network
in the world. To estimate its hearing, we
measure the average number of "like" and
comments tabled on the articles and the
Facebook page. This rate of interaction
determines the "Edge Rank", which is the tool
that Facebook uses to assess if a page must be
more or less displayed on the 'Facebook walls'
of its fans. A high rate of interaction particularly
shows the existence of a strong connection
between the project and the people who follow

The school
I am in relation with the school Andre Malraux,
located in France, in the department of Essonne.
The idea is to raise awareness among children
to open them to the world and to educate them
to the respect of the biodiversity and the
cultures. I will have the pleasure to work with
Isabelle Lafaye, Patricia Sagnier and their
respective classes of children from 7 to 9 years
old. Children will have the opportunity to
discover wildlife and populations of Latin
America through my experience, through
educational games and exchanges with the local
children. Indeed, a collaboration with a local
school in Latin America to undertake a
correspondence is an objective in process.

In the long term
with the perspective of the project 'Eco
Volunteer International' in Asia and in Africa
with the establishment of an association more

Why commit with 'EVI Latin America' ?
It is not obvious for everyone to know how to
invest, or even to know why to act.
Gather the information, introduce the
associations, share an experience, that allows
those who wish it to see things more clearly and
to intervene on their own scales.
It is not only about creating a global action of
awareness for the cause, but also to highlight
the facts and the several ways to act and to
invite to a socially cohesive behavior.
The approach will provide a rewarding and
constructive experience to children, who are the
future generation.
The situation concerning animal and
environmental life in the world is,
unfortunately, alarming. The Earth's
biodiversity is greatly affected and this has a
considerable impact on the quality of human
life as well.
Each action matters.
