Join a heartwarming program in Costa Rica and help with the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife. Groups of animals from birds to primates and reptiles that are indigenous to Costa Rica are at risk of losing their habitats from deforestation, poaching, and trafficking. This program works for the rescue of these animals and the return of them to their natural habitats.
Volunteers on this Wildlife Rescue in Costa Rica program play an essential role in the care of the rescued animals and their contribution is invaluable. The work day is normally between 4 and 6 hours per day, 5 days per week, and while the work can be physically demanding, it is also tremendously rewarding. That said, volunteers are asked to have a flexible and positive attitude, as work schedules can and do change according to the needs of each rescue center.
No two days are ever the same on this project, and volunteers can expect to be involved with the following tasks:
4,586,353 (2011 census)
Equatorial, Monsoon, Tropical Savanna
Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO), Daniel Oduber Airport (LIR)
Tourism, Agriculture, Exports, Energy
