Leeftijd 18+

Ecuador is known as being one of the world’s most biologically diverse countries. During this project, you will help support endangered wildlife in Ecuador by volunteering in a local animal rescue center. The amazon basin of Ecuador is home to exotic animals like monkeys, reptiles, exotic birds, and wild cats as well as countless of species of exotic plants.

This project takes place in the amazon region of the country, about five hours away from Quito. The main goal of this project is to rescue and rehabilitate wild animals that have lived in inappropriate environments, like in small cages serving as attraction for tourists or in private households as pets. In addition, it also aims to help animals that have been victims of illegal animal trafficking. The project works with authorities to confiscate as many animals as possible from their harsh owners and bring them to the center. Animals are brought regularly by the police and people who want to protect the wildlife. The center opened in 2006 and calles several hectares of rainforest its own.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

The Amazon Rainforest is known worldwide as the green lung of our planet. This volunteer experience gives you the opportunity to make a positive difference in Ecuador’s fragile ecosystem. Volunteers usually work with the locals, and this gives them the unique chance to even learn about the culture and traditions of the region. 

On a typical work day, you will prepare food for the animals, clean and construct cages, clear hiking trails, maintain the center, and guide tourists around the center. 

The center is open to visitors, The entrance fee and donations are a source of income for the center. By participating in this project, you will get to hold and play with some animals and nurse others back to health. You will feel very rewarded knowing that you helped animals, and you will have an unforgettable experience.

​Note: The tasks may vary. They depend on factors such as number of volunteers, weather, season, current needs of the project, as well as self-motivation. Not every volunteer may be fully involved in all these tasks.


There are many different activities to choose from during your free time. There is a swimming pool onsite and many people go hiking to explore the beautiful landscapes. There is also a town close by where you can go socialize, shop souvenirs and visit cultural sites or museums. The region further invites for outdoor activities like rafting, canpoy, zip-line, jungle tours. The main attractions are definitively the many nature and wildlife parks where you can learn more bout local flora and fauna.

Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten. Afhaling van de luchthaven is ook niet inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Mariscal Sucre International Airport (UIO) in Quito. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Ecuador.
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Ecuador biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Ecuador dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Ecuador.
