My voluntary work at the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary has been lasting 2 months and became
an unique, unforgettable experience.
An intimate site,sorrounded by forest offers animals peace and a perfect recovery conditions.
The staff presents a top level of professionalizm
and a rare committment. Volunteers learn from them a lot about a Coast Rica's wildlife
The Sanctuary visitors can only watch those animals, which will never come back to their natural environment.. The number of visits is limited.
I am especially higly recommending tours with Mike - it is a perfect possibility to learn a
history of every single animal in Sanctuary.
The group of wild animals, which are to return to a natural environment in future is separated. Any stress must be limited, excluded.
Only caregivers and volunteers have a priveledge of access to that area: those ones, who clean cages, prepare food, develpe toys for animals.
It is a very responsible approach, which significantly helps in process of bringing animals back to the nature.
In course of my 2 months work at the Sancturay I witnessed a number of such touchy and exciting events.
I cannot find proper words which might express how grateful I am to all people who
established the Sanctary, and for everything what they have done and still do for animals. I am happy that I could meet them and spend 8 weeks learning, and doing all
those good things dedicated to animals in need. Thank you very much!
Last but not least: thanks to that adventure I have now even more friends, and worldwide.
