CRSI Ecuador Volunteer Program 2014
Location: San Isidro, Ecuador
Project: Animal Sanctuary
Duration: 6 months (Minimum 2 weeks)
Project Details: Cleaning, Feeding, Enrichment and General Care of all animals at the sanctuary.
For those that have read my blog on Ecuador I have been given the green light to go ahead with my volunteer project. Starting February 2014 I will be in need of volunteers to help me with these amazing animals.
The sanctuary is not open to the public, therefore there is limited funding. The project was created to not only assist with the daily duties of running a sanctuary, and provide the animals with much needed love and attention, but to eventually expand and help the local community as well.
Volunteer support is very important, with your hands-on help we can make a huge difference to the well-being of all the animals.
During your visit take the opportunity to learn Spanish, visit the Galapagos, and help local communities.
Daily Volunteer Work- 5 day week:
- Enrichment with the animals
- Cleaning the animals enclosures
- Preparing the food (vitamins, portions etc.)
- Feeding the animals
- Building or fixing enclosures and shelter
- Grounds maintenance and upkeep
- Assist with husbandry, new or injured or sick animals
Assisting with marketing and fundraising may also be required.
Fees go directly towards airport transfers, accommodations and meals. As there is no funding, a small portion goes towards staff and essential supplies for the sanctuary.
Cost: $125 a week with a minimum of 2 weeks.

When most people were planning their families, starting their career and thinking about a mortgage...my plan was to help others, even if it meant giving up all those things. Volunteering became my passion and I would always find a way to make it work. Since 2010 I've travelled the globe and have had some amazing volunteer experiences ... and a life I'm proud of.
