Our MISSION is to provide a Safe Haven to wild animals who are in need of a home and ENSURE that injured and traumatized animals receive proper medical care.The animals that live permanently on the farm were rescued and can't be released for many reasons, usually injury and an inability to hunt. These animals are kept in large enclosures and used for educating the public and raising awareness. Every animal that comes to Zanchieta have a permit from Department of Nature Conservation who does inspections of the animals and enclosures at six month intervals.The farm offers YOU, the Volunteer an opportunity to work and interact with the animals and gain exposure to all activities from cleaning, building enclosures, feeding, nursery up keeping, food preparation etc. and to unwind in a relaxing setting only a few meters away from the Lions. You will learn something about yourself, have fun, and learn new skills you can add to your resume. YOU are important to us and the animals here.
