About Program

Try and think of an animal cuter than a sloth… Can’t do it? We couldn’t either!

This iconic and adorable South American animal needs YOUR help!

Base yourself at our highly vetted partner (we made sure they’re incredible and do great work before working with them) and make a REAL difference to not only sloths, but countless other rescued exotic animals in need as well.

Spend your days working in rehabilitation, taking care of incredible creatures on the road to recovery. The work will be hard, but VERY rewarding. You’re going to leave knowing that you truly made a difference.

In your time off, discover a truly breathtaking part of Central America! With pristine beaches on both sides and rainforest, Costa Rica is utterly stunning from top to bottom.

Make lifelong friends and memories while doing some truly meaningful work getting up close and personal with some amazing animals, with pretty much everything you can think of already included!

Program Highlights

  • Rest easy knowing that your placement has been highly vetted. We’ve been there and worked with them personally, so we know from experience that they’re doing amazing work!
  • Accommodation and food is all included so pretty much your only expenses will be if you head off site to explore Costa Rica on your days off.
  • Arrive in safety, comfort and style with return airport transfers. You won’t have to navigate the backstreets looking for the (gorgeous but) isolated shelter.
  • Personal Trip Coordinator, ongoing support from our in-country partners & 24/7 Global Emergency Line
  • We’re going to continue supporting your travel dreams! We know that once that travel bug bites, it bites hard! To help, we’re going to give you a $200 Global Tour Voucher AND $250 off your next trip when you decide to travel with us again in the future.

Costa Rica Wildlife Sanctuary

My experience was incredible! Met a lot of incredible like minded people throughout my whole time there and was welcomed in by the staff and all the locals as if I was part of their family. Great group atmosphere with plenty of diverse activities to suit all travellers . Along with all of the great activities you can see and feel your own impact on the happiness and well being of the animals. All of the staff were so helpful and allow volunteers to help the animals in the most effective ways possible by letting them choose their own way to leave a mark on the rescue.
