You’d like to realize a dream and work with exotic animals in the jungle? Than this project is just right for you! Support an animal rescue center rain forest, protect animals and help to conversate the biodiversity of the Peruvian rainforest.
The rescue center is relatively new and one of the first in the region. In the middle of the Peruvian rain forest the center gives home to confiscated and freed local animals. Monkeys, sloths, turtles and parrots live there and are rehabilitated in their natural environment. As far as it is posible some animals live half-wild, always depending on their capacity to get used to their natural habitat again. The idea is to lead the animals back to their natural habitat.
While you are working at the center you will be surrounded by a stunning natural setting. Your volunteer work will contribute to the
protection and conservation of the wildlife in Peru.
On approx. 140 hectare of rain forest, together with the inhabitants of the villages nearby the center manages a sustainable cooperation for the reforestation and planting of typical local trees and plants, in order to reestablish the local flora in area.
