About this program

Spend your days surrounded by lush jungle, listening to the calls of the wildlife that make this area home. Join a life changing program as a wildlife volunteer in Ecuador. At this spectacular wildlife sanctuary volunteer program, you will contribute to the care and rehabilitation of numerous species. The animals taken in at the sanctuary have suffered injuries, been kept as pets, caged in poorly run zoos, and even smuggled by the illegal pet trade.

Volunteers at this program can make a difference to the lives of these previously mistreated animals, and assist with the rehabilitation and possible release back to the wild!

**Please note – the minimum age for this program is 18**
