This animal rescue and protection project, located in the Peruvian Amazon, rescues animals that were smuggled out of the rainforest, and rehabilitates them in their natural habitat.
As a volunteer, you'll perform a wide variety of tasks like preparing natural living spaces, doing educational work on the topic of animal protection, and feeding and caring for the animals. Since the project is without public funding, volunteer workers are urgently needed.
From Cusco, you'll embark upon a trip that will take you to exotic locations with different climates and diverse plant life within the Amazon Rainforest. You will experience breathtaking views of natural phenomena and work with indigenous peoples like the Harakmbut. Your destination after crossing the incredible breadth of Peru will be our animal rescue project located east of the Andes on the Amazonian tributary Madre de Dios.

This project aims to rescue and rehabilitate endangered wildlife affected by deforestation and illegal animal trafficking - if possible, the animals are released back into their natural habitat. We also work to strengthen the bond between the environment and surrounding communities through education about the dangers of animal trafficking.
Overall, our programs are designed to help protect the irreplaceable flora and fauna of the Amazon Rainforest for generations to come!
