The program

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to preserve the amazing wildlife of the Amazon. For those with a love for animals and an adventurous spirit – this program offers a fabulous experience. Based at an animal rescue and rehabilitation centre in the Amazon jungle, volunteers work in partnership with an indigenous Quichuan community. The program's mission is to rescue wild animals from unhealthy and illegal situations, such as animal-trafficking and mistreatment. The groups of animals are mainly primates, birds, and reptiles. Volunteer programs of this type in Ecuador – dedicated to animal welfare – are scarce. The centre has over 60 private hectares of prime Amazon forest within which some of the animals can live freely, while others are rehabilitated prior to release. Like all wildlife conservation projects, funding is always low, so volunteers are essential to ensuring this program can continue to operate and help the thousands of Amazonian animals in need of protection and medical assistance.

Goals of this Project:

  • To rescue the amazing wildlife of the Amazon jungle
  • Work on projects to improve the environment for the wildlife and their long term prospects
  • Give medical assistance to animals as required and to ensure their health and wellbeing
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange between international volunteers and the local Quichuan community.

How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project. Like many conservation programs, funds are greatly lacking, and a willing volunteer labor force is essential to its success. Those working on this program need to be animal-lovers as well as physically fit. The work may also involve opportunities to assist with teaching children or helping indigenous families to plant crops. This is a wonderful program that has a direct impact on the lives of the animals in the Amazon.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Assist with working with animals
  • Work on projects to save and protect Amazon wildlife
  • Assist with teaching children
  • Participate in helping indigenous families plant crops

Tagesablauf

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

7:00am Breakfast in the communal area

8:15am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

8:30am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

4:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

Evenings Free time to simply relax, hang out with your fellow volunteers, have dinner together, then relax some more!

Freizeitaktivitäten

This wonderfully intrepid program is set in Pastaza Province in the Oriente of Ecuador and amidst the wild Andean jungle. Projects sites can be somewhat isolated and though travel offsite is often not available to volunteers every day, the local project team will assist volunteers who wish to visit the local town for supplies or to simply get out and explore for the day, which is usually left for their rostered days off. This is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live and work in the heart of the Ecuadorian rain forest!

Unterkunft

Volunteers on this project are accommodated onsite in shared dormitory-style cabins, right in the heart of the rescue center and among the animal enclosures! Cabins generally have 2-4 bunk beds per room and storage for personal belongings. A separate toiletries block is provided for volunteers to use, which includes hot running water and flushing toilets.

A large communal area is provided for volunteers and staff, which includes full kitchen facilities, a large dining area, comfortable couches and hammocks to relax on. Wifi is also available though may be limited at times. This is a wonderful environment to volunteer in and past volunteers have raved about how cool it is to be able to live within the rescue center itself!

Schlafsaal
Verpflegung

Three meals per day are provided at the project and are included in the program fee. Volunteers are expected to help with cooking and cleaning up (using a roster-based system), so everyone contributes at meal times – bringing a wonderful ‘family’ feel to this project. Volunteers are able to make trips to the local town to purchase any additional food items/snacks they may desire.
