Über das Programm

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. 

Challenges
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. 

Solutions
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.

Über die Organisation

NGO Taxi is partner for small organizations and individuals that have a strong social objective and are working hard to make a difference in their communities.

Lerne deine Organisation kennen

Our Organization

We work as international logistics, communications and service provider for humanitarian aid projects by supporting local, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), non-profit organizations (NPOs) and private development aid initiatives. All organizations we work with, are vetted to ensure they have high levels of accountability and transparency.

Our Commitment

We provide a platform through which organizations in Latin America can find the resources they need to achieve their goals, including people placement, technology and capacity building. This includes skilled manpower, relief items, construction materials, administrative, educational, environmental and medical support. Our commitment is to be an online advocate and agent of change.

Our Approach

NGO Taxi identifies projects in need. When a project has been approved to be accountable we send volunteers to support and work together with communities and supporters to identify issues and design sustainable solutions (e.g. micro finance initiatives). From beginning to end the entire life cycles of our projects – the identification process, the evaluation process and the monitoring of project locations and development aid initiatives – are documented.

I have rarely seen so many happy people, and laughed so freely. I spent my time in Peru in the animal shelter project. My thoughts of what to expect there were quite different to what I found. The village in which you live consists mainly of wooden huts, with mountains and greenery around you ...
