Help, Learn, Enjoy!

If you are passionate about animals and nature conservation, we are your place! We rehabilitate wild animals who were victims of illegal trafficking and release them back into the Amazon. We provide a safe home for those who can't be released, and create awareness about the perils of wildlife trafficking within our community and around the world.

Our mission is to conserve Amazon wildlife, support indigenous communities, and make a real contribution to a healthier planet for all. As an amaZOOnico volunteer you will be directly involved in our work, helping and learning while going on a unique meaningful journey of your own.  
Experience the Amazon and help us to protect the forest and its animals. Help us with the daily work of caring for the animals - feeding, cleaning, enrichments, and environmental education. Work at Amazoonico is hard but very rewarding!

Join us in the Ecuadorian rainforest and help us to protect the forest and its animals. Take advantage of a unique opportunity to participate in our project.

Journée Typique

Work is very hard but also extremely rewarding.

Volunteers help 5 days a week, and have two days off. As we work 7 days a week your days off will not necessarily be at the weekends. The main work is caring for the animals. We have resident and temporary animals. All must be fed two times daily and their enclosures cleaned. The work can be physically tough, for example we carry whole banana trunks and other fruit which we buy for the animals from local people three times a week. You will be expected to guide tourists around, giving information about our projects and animals. In addition, volunteers perform other duties like building enrichments, collecting fresh leaves for the animals, helping with the new construction projects and helping maintain the center in general. We also encourage our volunteers to let us know if they have skills and ideas to support us further.

A typical day,

7 am
  • Clean the cages and feed the animals. This is usually done alongside at least one other volunteer and the cages you look after will vary so you get to do them all across the week. Twice a week at this time you will help carry the heavy fruits from the river up to the centre.

  • Breakfast + clean the utensils that you used for cleaning the cages after breakfast.

Activités de Loisir

Free time is precious time 


At amaZOOnico, we expect volunteers to work hard, but we also expect them to take time to slow-down and enjoy the experience to the fullest. 

You are free to rest or explore around after work. The favorite after-work activities are: walking around the jungle, swimming in the river, resting in the hammocks and listening to music. We are sure you will find more than one way to make the most out of your amazing amaZOOnico adventure.

Every week you are assigned two days off, when you can join our forest rangers in their patrols around Selva Viva, our protected area where wildlife thrives, or stay cozy, rest and enjoy. You can also visit Tena the local city to relax or enjoy some food and drinks.
