La Senda Verde wildlife refuge is located approximately 2.5 hours by bus from La Paz and is situated between the small towns of Yolosa and Yolosita by the Yolosa river.
We offer low-cost short and long term volunteering opportunities. Short-term volunteers will work with monkeys, birds, turtles, cats and bears on a rotational basis. Long-term volunteers (1 month or more) will have the opportunity to become a surrogate for a baby monkey or to work more closely with the Andean bears.
The refuge is also an ecolodge which means that you can stay at the sanctuary for a few nights before making a decision about volunteering.
