Wildlife Sanctuary in Costa Rica
Wildlife and Conservation
Since 1994 the project has been dedicated to creating a wildlife sanctuary to provide refuge and protection to rescued animals and provide knowledge on the management of wild animals such as jaguars, sloths, macaws and tapirs. The experience is focused on wildlife management, ecological restoration and environmental education.
This program is designed for
Everyone who has passion and love for animal and nature care and conservation
Your responsibilities at this project may vary widely depending on the needs of the organization at the time of your visit. There are numerous diverse functions that you can perform to help animals, so you are not required to have specific knowledge about them. One of the potential roles would be to help feed the monkeys, jaguars, tapirs, macaws, also participate in the process of animal rescue and rehabilitation. You will also perform maintenance work in enclosures and environmental enrichment initiatives for animals. The tasks are focused on providing welfare to the animals and allow you to learn how to handle and care for wild animals correctly.
