You can make a significant contribution if you volunteer, getting up close and personal with the animals as you help make toys for them, build new enclosures, and help prepare their food. Call or check the website in advance, as prior reservations are required before visiting.

  • We spent 5 days here volunteering and taking Spanish classes. The staff is composed of a group of truly committed individuals and they are concerned for the animals and work hard to educate the public. The guided tour is excellent and everyone seems to enjoy it. Highly recommended
  • Loved it. I joined a group of 20 people and we helped prepare and feed animals rescued from poachers or other situations where the animals need rehabilitation to be released safely back into their environment.
  • My daughter and I had a fun, memorable, and highly informative visit. May seem expensive but it's a uniquely exceptional experience and I am glad to be supporting their work.
  • Carlos was a great tour guide. Awesome experience, educational and saw lots of amazing animals. I held hands with Jessica the monkey and pet Perla the pig. A+
  • I have been here many times. I love the work they do.
