Most of the animals that are arriving at the Rescue Center have been confiscated from illegal poachers and traffickers who leave them in very poor conditions due to malnutrition, stress, and injury. The Center tries to avoid the animals becoming “imprinted” on humans and ask volunteers not to handle animals more than necessary as most will be released back into the wild.
There are certain responsibilities that volunteers at the Rescue Center have and everyone is expected to pull their own weight. Besides of the daily feeding and caring of the animals, cage cleaning, food preparation, and monitoring the health of the animal there are special on-going activities in which you are expected to participate as needed.
These activities include: constructing cages or extra buildings, maintaining trails, gathering foods for the animals, and researching the wild diets of the animals.
The Center is truly a magical place that holds natural beauty within and outside the cages! There are no special skills required but you should definitively be an animal lover and not fear exotic animals. The animals and the Wildlife Center are waiting for your help.
