Volunteer in a zoo in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Work hands on with our animals including feeding our Jaguars, Pumas, Ocelots and our various species of Monkeys, be involved in enrichment programs for our resident animals and designing and building new enclosures. You also have the opportunity to complete research, be involved in our conservation, education and tourism work, learn Spanish, go on jungles tours and visit local communities and shaman. We offer quality accommodation and 3 meals a day. Spanish is not required and volunteers are asked to stay a minimum of 2 weeks.
A large part of the zoo's work involves working closely with the Ministry of Environment to rescue animals that have fallen victim to illegal wildlife trade and attempt to release as many animals into the wild as we can as part of our wider conservation work as well improving the quality of life of the individuals we are unable to release.
