Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of injured, sick and orphaned wildlife here in Costa Rica. Our ultimate objective is to assist in the recovery and release of native wildlife. We also provide lifetime care to those that cannot return to the wild. We have a well-equipped veterinary clinic and employ a qualified and experienced veterinary team to provide high quality veterinary treatment to all animals.
Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary accepts volunteers from all over the world, who can commit to a minimum stay of 1 week and a maximum of 3 months. As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to work closely with animals that most people only dream of! You can help with food preparation, cleaning and feeding, providing environmental enrichment, clinical procedures, pre-release monitoring, behavior observation, record keeping, marketing, fundraising, maintenance and so much more!
- You will meet lots of like-minded, new people and have opportunities to explore the local area, walk in pristine wilderness and experience genuine Costa Rican culture.
