Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Volunteer at Animal Rescue Center Costa Rica



We are dedicated to protecting and helping endangered Costa Rican wildlife with all means available to us. Our first and foremost goal is to ensure the welfare of the animals at the center and help them recover from both, physical and psychological wounds that have arisen from their past suffering. Since many animals become victims of abuse in the tourism sector or the illegal pet trade, we want to raise awareness about their mistreatment. Our work is our way of leading the change to more animal welfare and a sustainable way of living in coexistence with wildlife.
