Volunteer with an organization that has painstakingly replaced non-native plants with indigenous species on 183 acres! Now the sanctuary is home to parrots, tortoises, tapirs, bush dogs, ocelots, pumas, jaguars, spider monkeys, and dozens of other types of animals! Some were the victims of abuse or injury, but many of the valuable animals were rescued from the illegal rare pet trade. Consequently, the park is closed to the public and the address is not published.
ELI volunteers help with the following activities: Feeding the animals, cleaning enclosures, breeding programs, planting, monitoring animal behavior, assisting the full-time biologist and/or visiting vets, researchers and permanent staff as needed. Volunteer apartment provided on the property.
