My experience at Esperanza Verde was a mosaic of different experiences and discoveries.
Concerning wildlife, I was constantly exposed to a beautiful surrounding composed of a wide diversity of plant and animal species. I got to learn about the behavior, the diet and how the local animals interact with their ecosystem. The whole team as well as the activities allowed me to learn about different species that I had never seen before, or about which is the best way to protect these species (usually differently than most people think). Being at the center definitely helped me feel more comfortable around these wild species and to really understand the balance of human/animal cohabitation.
Apart from discovering the natural landscape I also lived there an amazing human experience. Meeting other volunteers and locals who are very open to new cultures and ideas was so enriching. I had an amazing time, with numerous interesting conversations and many good laughs.
As for the organization, I was amazed by how easy it all was. The team was always there to help me with any doubt and the trip was no problem at all. The place is very well equipped and your security is a priority at all times.
My experience there is something I will hardly forget; I learned, laughed, felt useful and met so many beautiful people and animals. I strongly recommend this center for anyone interested in the environment and who is just simply looking to help.
