FreeWildlifeBrazil Celine

Animal Release Center: Website Developer

Iporanga, Brazil show on map

Build and design an informative website that can promote FreeWildlifeBrazil Celine and its ability to combat the hunting, trafficking and illegal capture of wild animals.

FreeWildlife Brazil Celine is looking for a web developer to build and design an informative website that can promote FreeWildlifeBrazil Celine and its ability to combat the hunting, trafficking and illegal capture of wild animals.

This will be done by adding new content (such as a section with independent pages describing our projects); add new features to our website; improve the aesthetics; and organize the website structure. 

The Betary Reserve is situated about 6 kilometres from Iporanga. Iporanga is a small municipality in the State of São Paulo, founded in 1755 on the banks of the Ribeira de Iguape River and at the mouth of the Rio Iporanga. The name Iporanga of Tupi origin means "beautiful river". Iporanga has around 4,300 inhabitants and a total area of 127,700 hectares. 

You will be working closely with our volunteer coordinator, the manager of FreeWildlife Brazil Celine and our other volunteers. We have partnered with IPBio (Biodiversity Research Institute), an NGO that also works on the Betary Reserve with whom we cooperate closely, to develop a joint volunteer program. Often our programs are interlinked, so you will definitely meet IPBio's staff members and volunteers with whom we often do weekend activities and have dinner parties also. In addition, you will share the accommodation with IPBio's volunteers.

Typical day

As a volunteer at FreeWildlifeBrazil Celine you work from Monday to Friday. A typical working day will range from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Your focus will be on the website but you are also free to help other volunteers with their work and help with the daily care of the animals. 

Free-time activities

Our town is called the Cave Capital of Brazil so volunteers often visit our state parks to explore the caves. Hike into the dense forest and visits to waterfalls are also common activities. Tubing, big balloons, are used to drift down the rivers, some of the river route are 3 hours long! 

After work volunteers can swim on the reserve deck, organize dinners, watch movies, read and go wildlife watching. On the weekend we often have a barbeque or organize dinner at a restaurant. Often there are social events or parties in the community that volunteers can go to.
