Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! Help this Quechua family-run Centre to rescue, rehabilitate and, where possible, release wild animals in the fight again trafficking, abuse and hunting of wild species. You'll work with a Foundation dedicated to caring for animals that have nowhere else to go. Some are orphans because their parents were killed by hunters, others were rescued from animal dealers, and others were rescued from people who kept them in small cages!
The rescue Centre covers an area of over 100 hectares on land belonging to a Quechua family whose ancestral line stems back hundreds of years. As a family-run rescue Centre, they have a great understanding of the local community, the culture and the plight of their native wild animals.
There are currently over 70 animals at the Centre which include: Primates (Squirrel Monkeys, Titi and Capuchin Monkeys), Mammals (Peccaries, Coati, Tayra, Kinkajou, Margay), Reptiles (Tortoises) and Birds (Turkeys, Parrots and Macaws).
The Centre is dedicated to helping the local community in many ways, not only in contracting their local services to help the local economy, but also in educational programs, working closely with the local school to teach children the importance of environmental issues.
Your work will be varied and you'll be involved in some or all of the following:
Day-to-day care of the animals
Cutting up fruit and preparation of diets,
Feeding the animals
Helping new arrivals adjust to the Centre
Measuring and weighing the animals
Studying their behaviour
