About the project:

The centre works with Ecuador’s Ministry of Environment to rescue, rehabilitate, and release illegally-trafficked Amazonian animals back into the wild. Tourists are not allowed to visit the centre, which is the only one of its kind in the biological corridor between the national parks of Sangay and Llanganates. It is currently home to around 90 animals, including parrots, kinkajous, cats and a group of woolly monkeys and howler monkeys that are being prepared for release. The centre has previously released sloths, armadillos, snakes, felines and tamarin monkeys amongst many other animals.

What you’ll be doing:

Volunteers are needed to help with the day-to-day running of the centre, including feeding, cleaning and preparing enrichment for the animals. There is a strict hands-off policy towards working with most of the animals.

Desired skills:

Just bring your enthusiasm!
