The Bolivia Wildlife Sanctuary is tucked away amongst a dense riverine valley near the town of Coroico, roughly 100km from the city of La Paz, and it provides a safe haven for animals that have been rescued from the illegal trafficking industry.
You will play a key role in helping to keep the sanctuary running, and to do this you will be involved in activities such as feeding and interacting with the animals, creating innovative enrichment ideas to keep them stimulated and helping to improve the project's own facilities. It is illegal to release most species of animals back into the wild, so ensuring that their sanctuary home remains comfortable for them is paramount. You will take part in observational tasks, day-to-day care, and construction activities at the sanctuary, but if you stay for four weeks or longer you may have the opportunity to work more closely with a specific species at the sanctuary. No matter how long you visit for, your time here will certainly be worthwhile!
