Travel to Guatemala and participate in a volunteer program with Animal Experience International at a local wildlife rescue centre. The centre was created to care for and rehabilitate animals affected by the black market. The centre is one of the largest rescue centres in the world. Your contribution to the centre is to care for the animals including feeding, cleaning, as well as participating in extra tasks including cutting grass, cleaning, etc.
You’ll stay in a volunteer house at the rescue centre, located in a stunning tropical forest. You’ll meet like-minded volunteers and staff, enjoy time to explore and discover this incredible country, as well as learn about the local flora and fauna.
Your volunteer experience includes:
This experience is life-changing!
Volunteers provide care for all of the animals at the centre. Shifts are from 6 am to 3 pm daily, with opportunities to do more if you are interested. If you would like a day off, this can be arranged in advance with the coordinator once you are there.
You will be assigned to an area each day, and volunteer duties include feeding, cleaning and providing enrichment for the animals. Animal diets are prepared every morning, and the animals are given their food and clean water. Much of the cleaning happens throughout the day while animals are monitored. Each day volunteers help with extra tasks around the centre such as cutting the grass with a machete, hand scrubbing the animals laundry and laying the towels out to dry, and cleaning areas of the dorm or other common areas.
