2 people are interested
Founded in 2006 in partnership with a local indigenous family that lives in the Amazon rainforest, this centre works with the Ministry of the Environment and the Environmental Police to rescue and rehabilitate wild animals from the jungle that were victims of abuse and animal trafficking. This placement is ideal for people interested in biology, animal rights, conservation, and environmental policy. Remote, but beautiful, the property teems with its talkative residents: parrots, monkeys, turtles, wild cats, and other mammals who call the verdant, lush green surroundings of this idyllic tropical location home.
Why the project needs you
Beyond routine maintenance, the Centre’s overworked staff needs support to achieve its long term goals, including moving the existing infrastructure and animals to a bigger location and most importantly, developing partnerships with local environmental authorities to advocate for protected areas where the animals may ultimately be re-released safely in their natural habitats.
