Highlights
    What to Expect
    The tour starts at the wildlife rescue center in the morning or afternoon (depending of your option selected). You would be given an introduction about the Wildlife Rescue Center and then it's time for the 3.5-hour tour and volunteer program to begin.

    A guide will lead you to visit the facilities where the animals are. There, you will have a chance to know each animal and learn why they are here. You will be able to see them up-close and to take photographs of them all.

    After this, there will be a coffee break (including exotic fruits, juice and coffee); and then the volunteering activities will begin. These activities include the preparation of their food. 

    This is a wonderful opportunity to be an active participant in the caring of wild animals and learn about the importance of conservation.

    If you book with a tour (often through a hotel), transportation can be included. You can provide your own transportation. We had rented a car so we drove ourselves. It was easy to find.
