The centre is equipped with a quarantine area, veterinary hospital, rehabilitation area and flight cages which are spread out through the jungle.

This experience is fulfilling, life-changing, and exciting!
Volunteers provide care for all of the animals at the centre. Shifts are from 6 am to 3 pm daily, with opportunities to do more if you are interested. If you would like a day off, this can be arranged in advance with the coordinator once you are there.
You will be assigned to an area each day, and volunteer duties include feeding, cleaning and providing enrichment for the animals. Animal diets are prepared every morning, and the animals are given their food and clean water. Much of the cleaning happens throughout the day while animals are monitored. Each day volunteers help with extra tasks around the centre such as cutting the grass with a machete, hand scrubbing the animals laundry and laying the towels out to dry, and cleaning areas of the dorm or other common areas.
