Help Planet Rehab protect endangered species!

According to the United Nations Environmental Programme Report, human actions have sped up the extinction rate by 1000%. This translates to losing an estimated 150-200 species each day! You can HELP to be part of the solution!

Planet Rehab is working to protect Tropical Rainforests, which host the majority of species found on our planet. We traveled to Costa Rica in late Sept 2017 and have been active in putting together programs to help protect species in this beautiful country. We will be relocating to Central America in the next 2-3 years to put together programs to help species at risk of extinction. We are identifying the species most at risk and are putting together our breeding program guidelines. The offspring will be released into our protected Rainforest, which will also serve as an educational opportunity for the public to raise awareness, as well as funding. This is a very exciting and challenging opportunity that will require a lot of work. Planet Rehab has over 40 years of experience breeding exotic species, and our team is fluent in Spanish as well as English. We will be visiting Panama to continue our "Discovery Tour" in the 1st quarter of 2018 to make inroads within the community, establish contacts, evalutate possible sites, etc., and our permanent re-location date will be in 2020.

One of the ways we plan on funding this project will be through offering tours to Costa Rica & Panama so we also will need travel agents/tour operators. Any experience with Costa Rica and/or Panama is valuable but not necessary.

We need people with various skillsets including:

  • Fundraising
  • Grant Writers
  • Tourism
  • Researchers
  • Zoology (Specilalists in Mammals, Avian, Entymology, etc)
  • Site Scouting (looking at where existing populations of species that we will be working with naturally intersect)
  • Construction
  • Project Planning & Execution
  • Team Leaders
  • Governmental Liaison
  • Animal Breeding Experience

IF YOU WANT to be on the front lines of helping to save this amazing planet of ours, this opportunity is for you! Prior to joining our team, please review carefully our website so you understand our goals and campaigns.

If you have any questions regarding this Opportunity please feel free to email us!

AGAIN - IF YOU ARE INTERESTED in this opportunity, please email garym@planetrehab.org and tell us a little about yourself, level of experience and how you would like to help.

Be sure to check your SPAM folders (after you email us)
