This is a unique opportunity to actively work in an animal rehabilitation and release program and to work with and help a Quichuan community of the Amazon. Volunteers will also be working alongside and contributing to the indigenous community. There may also be opportunities to assist the children with school and other activities or help the families plant new crops. A proportion of volunteer fees are also put directly back into this community.
The number of volunteer programs in Ecuador dedicated to animals is extremely small, since most projects involve social activities. This opportunity is unique as you will be living in a communal area and your help will be invaluable. It is important that you are physically fit, enthusiastic and have a great love for animals.
