We include a FREE 1-week Spanish Course, to allow you to have a greater impact. Help combat illegal animal trafficking in the Amazon.

This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+

Volunteer duties are diverse and include interaction with the center's exotic animals’, general conservation, and visitor education. So if you want to create a positive future for these mistreated animals, while exploring the world’s most remarkable rainforest, then read on!

We include a 1-week full immersion FREE Spanish course because we believe that it will allow you to have a greater impact on the project, as you will be able to interact with local people and communities and share knowledge and skills. The Spanish course is catered to your project and will teach you specific vocabulary that you will need during the placement. 

Illegal animal trafficking in Ecuador is far-reaching, the trade is the fourth most profitable illegal activity in the world. In 2014, the number of trafficked animals rescued by authorities was approximately 8,000. Most exotic animals are taken from their natural rainforest environment in order to be sold on the domestic or international market. Animals most at risk from trafficking are being sold as pets, they include reptiles, mammals, birds, fish and insects. 

In recent years, several non-profit rescue centers have opened within Ecuador with the aim to rehabilitate, care for, and release back into the wild captured exotic animals. Although wildlife trafficking is now officially an illegal activity, the law can be hard to implement, especially in the outlying regions of the Amazon, therefore these important shelters are at the leading edge of the fight against illegal trafficking. We need your assistance to keep these centers in working order. Together we can stop this cruel industry!

Come and join us to:
  • Work closely with vulnerable animals under the supervision of the center. 
  • Learn about the process to rehabilitate different breeds of animals.
  • Give close care and attention to mistreated, neglected or abandoned animals.
  • Rehabilitate animals and teach them how to survive in their natural habitat.
  • Release the animals back into the wild and give them a second chance in life.
  • Inform both local population and visitors on issues concerning illegal trafficking.
  • Create a lasting relationship between the community and the environment.


  • Preparation and distribution of the animals’ food on a daily basis.
  • Washing the animals’ cages on a daily basis.
  • Assisting in constructing and/or maintaining cages when necessary.
  • Occasionally helping with the medical treatment of animals.
  • Observing & reporting on animals health and general welfare.
  • Help to clean the general compound.
  • Occasionally act as a guide for any visitors to the center.
  • Assisting with monitoring tasks by filing reports.
  • Keeping a personal diary of your time with the project (including photos/ blogs)
  • Collecting daily food supplies, run errands and other administrative tasks
The tasks listed above are examples: the exact Project responsibilities are handed out by the Project Manager on the day, and will depend on the current needs and priorities.
