Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Volunteer with Rescued Wildlife Bolivia



Jacj Cuisi is one of our wildlife sanctuaries. Jacj Cuisi consists of 300 hectares of Pre-Andean Amazon forest, located 25 km from Rurrenabaque. The sanctuary borders the Madidi National Park, one of the most biodiverse places in the world. Jacj Cuisi´s main goal is to care rescue and rehabilitate wild animals that have been victims of illegal trade, mistreatment, or habitat destruction. The organization works to provide a safe and natural environment for these animals to recover. We do not receive touristic visits, because we want to provide a stress-free environment to our animas, hence, volunteering fees are our main source of income.

Other information:
In Jacj Cuisi you can enjoy walks through the jungle where you will see many birds (macaws, toucans, Amazonian parrots) and you can bathe in its streams of crystal-clear water. At night take the opportunity to stargaze and join our walks on full moon nights to see nocturnal animals. The atmosphere at Jacj Cuisi is very family-like. Volunteers usually go to Rurrenabaque on their days off to have cocktails and dine at international restaurants. They usually spend the night there and enjoy their day off relaxing and sightseeing around Rurrenabaque, a beautiful, charming town. Don’t miss the opportunity to buy some croissants, brownies and quiches at the French bakery.


Incredible experience
"I helped look after the cheeky capuchin monkeys and it was an unforgettable experience with some magical moments and memories I'll cherish forever. The team put their whole heart and soul in to giving the animals the best life possible. Highly recommended!"- Tom Solaru
