The Amazon Animal Rescue Center is located in the Ecuadorian rainforest and works in rescuing, rehabilitating and when possible releasing animals back to their natural environment. The centre works in partnership with the Ecuadorian Environmental Police (UPMA) and the Ministry of Environment in the fight against the trafficking, abuse, capture and hunting of wild animals. This center is very organized and volunteers can help with caring for the animals and maintenance.

The center was founded in 2006 with the aim of protecting the wildlife of the Amazon region through the rescue and rehabilitation of local flora and fauna. The animals at the center have all been abused, neglected or abandoned. Some of the animals were orphaned when their parents were killed by hunters, others were rescued from animal dealers who were trying to traffic the animals out of the country and others have been removed from families who had kept these animals in captivity. Unfortunately, the majority have suffered some sort of physical or psychological abuse. Some of the animals have been handed over to the care of the center by Government authorities who have rescued or taken custody of the animals; others have arrived at the center by voluntary means from families who realized that wild animals are not to be kept as domestic pets.

There are currently at least 40 different species of animals at the center which include: Ocelot, tayra, capibara, parrots, monkeys, tortoises, and caimans amongst others.

The center is also open for tourists to visit, charging a small entrance fee that is the center’s only other source of income. As animal welfare is not a high priority for many Ecuadorians, the background and mistreatment of each animal is explained to tourists, with the idea to educate local and foreign visitors about animal protection issues. In general the visits are not guided, but tourists can read about each animal on the information sign at the cages.

This project offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to work for and protect a large number of wild animals whilst living in a beautiful part of the Amazon rainforest.
Volunteer Activities
Volunteers are needed to help with the following activities:

- Day to day care of the animals
- Cutting up fruit, preparation of diets, feeding the animals
- Helping new arrivals adjust to the center
- General maintenance and cleaning
- Construction work; repairing and building new enclosures
- Cage and enclosure enrichment
- Assisting the vet when necessary
- Other activities such as gardening, improving trails, making signs for visitors

The more hard work you put into the project, the more reward you get! Show initiative, work independently and don’t be afraid of working hard. They need all the help you can give them.

Volunteer at Amazon Animal Rescue Center

Work Schedule

You will work from 08:00 to 12:00 and 14:30 to 17:00, Monday to Friday. On Saturdays OR Sundays, volunteers work for a few hours in the morning as the animals still need feeding and looking after but once all the tasks are completed you are free for the weekend. It is important that you are on time and punctual to work.

Location

This project is located 10 minutes from the jungle town of Puyo. Travelling by bus from Quito will take you approximately 4/5 hours to reach. Bus fare is not included, and at your own expense.

Animals Living in Yanacocha

As it is a rescue and rehabilitation center, the population of the center is never stable, but fluctuates both in quantities as in species. Most commonly the species that will be in the centre are the following:

- A variety of monkeys - capuchin monkeys, chorongos or woolly monkeys, white-bellied spider monkeys and the red titi monkey.
- Red and Yellow Macaws which are the most common macaws found in the Amazon Rainforest.

Other Projects in Yanacocha

Although the main goal of Yana Cocha is animal wellbeing and restoration of the animals to their natural habitat where possible, they also run other projects, such as conservation and research at its private reserve, and environmental education at schools and communities.

Recommendations

The jungle climate is hot and humid with occasional rain. High rainfall occurs between December and March. Items that we recommend you bring are:
- Comfortable and light clothing
- Rubber boots
- Insect repellent
- Sun cream
- Long sleeve shirts and t-shirts
- Quick drying trousers
- A fleece/ jumper for the evenings
- Rain jacket
- Flashlight

Specific Volunteer Advice on Working with Animals

- Please remember that not all of the activities are "fun" but they are necessary for the well-being of the animals and the sanctuary. Also, the more involved you get in your work the more responsibility you will be given as a volunteer once you have built a certain level of trust with the animals and workers.
- Please check with your local doctor regarding any vaccinations that you may need before travelling to Ecuador; however rabies and tetanus vaccinations are recommended.
- This project is for animal lovers who do not mind getting their hands dirty!

Mandatory Volunteer Requirements

Minimum age of 18
All foreigners entering Ecuador are obliged to have a valid health insurance
Basic English
Basic Spanish is an advantage, but not required

Volunteer Introduction Week in Quito

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.
