Über das Programm

Care for wild animals in the mayan rain forest. Care for their well-being, feed them and help with their rehabilitation and reintroduction into the wild. Our refuge is home to mistreated animals who were victims of poaching and aimed to be sold in the black market or suffered from deforestation and growing tourism.

During this project, volunteers have the opportunity to take care of wild and exotic species. Scarlet macaws, starchy parrots, kinkajous, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, peccaries, coatis, margays, jaguars, etc. In the wild animal refuge volunteers are in charge of feeding the animals, caring for them and making they environment and cages as fun and natural as possible (by building perches, repairing cages or putting up ropes etc). You will also have to clean their cages and the equipment used. 

In addition to the daily food and animal care, you may be participating in other activities. It could the implementation of educational activities for the local community or tourists or if your lucky the release of the wild animals back into the wild. 

Volunteers must adapt their schedules and their behaviours to meet the needs of the refuge and the animals.

Über die Organisation

We believe that the best way to discover a new culture is through working on a social project with the local population and living their daily life with them.

Lerne deine Organisation kennen

LifeTime Projects is a French based non profit organisation. 

We work in the following fields : 
 - Child protection
 - Women's rights
 - The protection of the environment and animal welfare 
 - Eco citizenship

In the following countries : 
- Bolivia
- Cameroun
- Colombia
- Guatemala
- England
- France 

We believe in : 

Living in total immersion in the country you visit 
By discovering the world with LifeTime Projects, you will experience unforgettable moments. Whether during your mission, with your host family or with the people you meet, you will discover the culture and traditions of a country directly. Thanks to this complete immersion in the life of the country, and having built a project with the locals, you will return with a real knowledge of the local culture.

Take part in concrete actions
Do you have difficulty measuring the impact of good deed ? The best way to measure the usefulness of your actions is to carry them out directly, in the field! That is why LifeTime Projects supports you in the design and organization of your humanitarian mission or gap year in total immersion.

Change your world view, make a difference
Our humanitarian and ecological missions are designed to have a maximum impact, not only locally but also on the volunteer who will return to his or her daily life enriched by a new perspective on the world.
We act where people need us most and where our presence is most wanted. You will come back with the feeling that you have made a difference and made your contribution to a more understanding world. We believe we all have a lot to learn fro each other and putting different cultures together is enriching and strengthening for all. 

Your footprint
We hope to leave our mark, that of sharing, love and mutual respect, in the hearts of the people we meet and work with (note that our organization is independent of any political party and religious organization).
Whether in Cameroon, Bolivia, Guatemala, Colombia, France or England, discovering the world allows a better understanding of its challenges. What seems distant from France takes a whole new dimension before, during and after the experience of a mission with LifeTime Projects.
Participating in an international development mission with LifeTime Projects also means contributing to sustainable development by helping people and changing their view of the world.
