Volunteers should travel, have fun and make a difference!
Much of the work that takes place at the Rescue Center is in the Nursery, hosptital and cages, where recently-received animals need immediate attention and special diets and medicines. Baby monkeys and sloths depressed by their separation from their mother must be cuddled and fed by hand. This is what we call babysitting times.
In addition to the regular daily feeding and care of the animals, usually has special on-going activities in which volunteers can participate. These activities include:
Construction of cages or extra buildings.
Gathering of wild foods for the animals.
Research into the wild diets of the animals.
Giving tours and creating educational exhibits.
Participating in additional environmental education activities and community projects
Volunteers also make cage and enclosure improvements or “enrichments” by adding toys, perches and other stimuli that help the animal in their rehabilitation process.
Volunteers are encouraged to join us at any point during the year. Our project has welcomed students, travelers and professionals from countries around the world who have an interest in hands-on conservation and data collection work with endangered species.
