Our volunteer program is an unpaid volunteer program designed for volunteers to assist in all tasks like feeding, maintenance and entertain animals that are living in the shelter.

Volunteers help us also welcoming visitors at the entrance, explaining our goals and answering any questions that the visitors may have about the shelter or its resident animals. Learning about wildlife management will grow as the volunteer spend more days in the shelter, from positive interaction with animals to good diet and reproduction

If you like reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and are also interested in preserving the environment, you can be perfect for this program.

Volunteer activities:

  • interacting with visitors
  • maintenance of animal enclosures
  • answer basic questions about animals
  • training of wild resident animals that are in the shelter
  • cleaning, preparation of diets
  • among many other things... If you like wildlife, you will enjoy.

Volunteer to stay a month: This type of volunteering is perfect for adult volunteers who want help for a longer time. The volunteer can come every day he or she wants within the hole month. It is necessary also always to assist to the shelter shirt and respect the conditions of volunteering.

Volunteer Caregiver for a day: perfect for little animal lover boys and girls that only want to go on weekends or a few times per month. To volunteer you must have more than 7 years and you have to love animals!

We ACCEPT volunteers who need to perform Community Work in their high school and Community Work in their University career. If you want to book TCU or TCE here just fill out our form and send us an email with the dates you would like to make your hours.


Our Goal will always be "to take care of wild animals and free them back to nature where they belong"

Mission Statement

Meet all the needs of each volunteers in this beautiful and create a unique and different experience

Description

Located in Costa Rica. This is a family company that has been around since 2004 and enlisted the aid of hundreds of volunteers from all over the world, which ones come to our country to work on the ecological and social projects our company offer.

The farther you have to travel to get here and the eager you are to participate and learn about our great history and culture, the more we will appreciate and love you for your commitment to be the change in our great country. When you the volunteer dedicate your time and effort to us, we promise to dedicate all of our resources to making sure your efforts make the greatest difference possible.

A great example of a typical volunteer experience will be as follows. Before arriving in Costa Rica, the volunteers will have to choose the project that fits with their best interests whether it’s a social or ecological project. This is done for both the and the organization to be clear. We will then provide transportation from the airport to the host family residence, of which you will be living in during your stay. I have a group of local families that have renovated and dedicated their time and homes to our program.

The families we have chosen as hosts will do everything in their power to help you with your personal journey as well you will be able to immerse and understand the way our day to day "tica" life style is lived.
