Advice please- I’d love to do overseas fieldwork

Hey eco fam,

I have a solid background in garden/landscaping and my plant identification and actual gardening skills are great (I’m also a fast learner, and know plant ID will be very different as will techniques). I run a gardening business in NZ.

I’d really love to do 3-12 months overseas to support an NGO or researcher in the field, ideally South America but would consider anywhere.

Aside from what I’m about to do, which is bang on the doors of people I’ve seen interviewed in the media (I know- not a great plan) can anyone point me to the best place to look for a job like this?

I’m aware that I’ll be entry level- that’s totally fine. I just need to be able to afford to live while I’m over there, and I want something guaranteed lined up…
