A special thanks to Volunteer Latin America. I registered with them a few years ago in search of an internship to work with animals in South America after completing a Masters in Animal Welfare. I came across an opportunity in Bolivia at an animal sanctuary and I learnt a lot during my time there. It was immense. I gained experience with several different species, could use skills I had learnt during my education and other courses attended and helped educate locals on the trafficking of wild animals. I felt I had improved the lives of many animals and I met lots of like minded people. I even fell in love with a Chilean who was volunteering for the same organisation. We're now married and have started our own project here in Chile. We've opened up a 100% vegan cafe in Puerto Varas in the hope to encourage locals to eat less meat, to educate others on using less plastic and to live a more peaceful and environmentally friendly life.

Thanks for sending me on this path guys. And good luck to all the others on their search to provide help to ethical organisations too.

All the best


We found two projects in Costa Rica through your website and both were fabulous. Couldn't have wished for more. Already planning another trip at the end of the year with you guys!

Keep up the good work.
