WILDLIFE VOLUNTEER

Our animal rescue volunteer program may be combined with Spanish, yoga or surfing courses

Wildlife Volunteer

 

 

La Escuela Del Sol and Wild Sun Rescue Center are both located within the Wild Sun Jungle Resort.  Here we rescue injured and abandoned animals with the aim of returning them to the wild. For those who can no longer fend for themselves, we make them as comfortable as possible and hope that their presence will help to educate people of the dangers these precious animals face and what we can do to live more harmoniously with them in nature.

Volunteer duties include feeding animals at times but also landscaping, building habitats for the animal hospital, cleaning occupied habitats, marketing - including social media, photography & videography, article writing, research, and varied other tasks.

 


 

Special note: All decisions regarding animals are strictly for their welfare.  Since our aim is to release all as soon as possible, human contact is limited to the bare minimum.  Consistency of care reduces stress on recovering wildlife.  This means that in the rare cases that volunteers must come in contact with the animals themselves, priority will be given to longer term volunteers who have been trained for such situations.  As a volunteer, do not expect to touch animals unless it becomes necessary.  It's not about us.  It's about saving and conserving wildlife.  

Volunteer activities require a minimum of 4 hrs/day for 6 days/wk. We will accommodate volunteers' tasks according to their skills, talents and preferences as much as possible, but of course, not everyone likes to clean monkey cages and somebody will always have to do it! :)
