USD 465 per person

Why This Volunteer Work Project is Important

This Animal Rescue Center Puyo runs one of the most successful breeding and rehabilitation programs in Latin America for endangered wildlife that have been displaced due to deforestation and other rare and exotic animals that have been rescued by police from the cruel multi billion dollar black market animal trade. The rescued animals are free to life safely without fear of poachers and bulldozers on the 53 hectare of pristine rainforest on the Animal Rescue Centers property.

Typical Day Volunteering

Volunteers will be working deep inside the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest helping to care for animals that live in the property like cheeky clown monkeys, elusive spider monkeys, timid wooly monkeys, as well as other endangered animals like the possum and tapir, rare and exotic birds, snakes, alligators, and frogs. But the center is also working closely to the community and is going to fight against the oil companies that are interested in their lands.
