Project Details

Our main concern is animal trafficking. We’re working to end it and in the meantime offering refuge to those animals who have fallen victim to it.

For more than 25 years CIWY has cared for rescued wildlife, given disadvantaged youth a sense of purpose through involvement with wildlife care & educated the Bolivian public to respect wildlife.

Our largest focus continues to be aiding animals affected by the animal trade, although in more recent years we have focused more of our attention on preventing the illegal animal trade that is the culprit behind the need for our work.

- The 3 wildlife sanctuaries we have are in Bolivia.

Bolivia’s land isn’t just diverse—some of its features have broken records! Lake Titicaca is the world’s highest lake that’s deep enough for a boat to sail on. Salar de Uyuni, which sits in the southwest of the country, is the world’s largest salt flat. And the world’s highest forest sits more than 13,000 feet above sea level in Bolivia’s Sajama National Park. This takes cool scenery to new heights.  


- We are looking for more than 400 rescued animals, most of them came from black market or destruction of their habitat.


- Why choose us?

Volunteering in our wildlife centres is hard work. However, it is also incredibly rewarding, unique and sure to be a memorable experience.
