Join a heartwarming program in Costa Rica and help with the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife. Groups of animals from birds to primates and reptiles that are indigenous to Costa Rica are at risk of losing their habitats from deforestation, poaching, and trafficking. This program works for the rescue of these animals and the return of them to their natural habitats.

 

 

 

Itinerary

What to expect:

Volunteers on this Wildlife Rescue Costa Rica program play an essential role in the care of the rescued animals and their contribution is invaluable. The work day is normally between 4 and 6 hours per day, 5 days per week, and while the work can be physically demanding, it is also tremendously rewarding. That said, volunteers are asked to have a flexible and positive attitude, as work schedules can and do change according to the needs of each rescue center. No two days are ever the same on this project, and volunteers can expect to be involved with the following tasks:

Working closely with animals - mostly endangered species.
Cleaning animal enclosures/compounds.
Feeding animals – including bottle feeding infant animals.
Exercising the younger animals.
Assisting in emergency medical treatment when required.
The collection of leaves and other resources from the rainforest.
Assisting in rescue calls when required.
Maintenance of paths, signs and other infrastructure, building, repairing and maintenance of the animal enclosures.
