Volunteer with NGO Amazon Shelter for Animal And Enviromental Protection

NGO Amazon Shelter for Animal And Enviromental Protection

Puerto Maldonado, Peru, South America

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to rehabilitate wild animals in the Peruvian jungle.

Humans are the main responsible for the current problems in relation to the deterioration of ecosystems. We believe that it is necessary to wake up the consciousness in people to achieve a behavior change in their activities and stop this deterioration.

The main activity is developed around the Amazon ecosystem and the species which it houses, specifically in the southern jungle of Peru, where the Center of Rehabilitation and Conservation of Wild Animals (CRCAS), is located at kilometer 11.2 of the road to Tambopata from the city of Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios.

Our mission:
The conservation of the Peruvian Amazonian environment and wildlife through the environmental education.

Our objective:
To promote the conservation of the Amazonian fauna of Peru, with emphasis on local species threatened by the destruction of their habitat and the trafficking of fauna, activities that put the biodiversity of the Amazonian ecosystems in serious danger of survival.

What We Provide


The volunteer program includes the complete feeding of 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). The volunteers eat and socialize in a spacious
dining room.

It is allowed to bring snacks such as cereal bars, cookies, chocolates, etc. But
we ask not to bring food to the rooms, since the remains of food attract ants and
other insects.

inside the CRCAS facilities. The facilities have showers,
toilets and electricity 220V 24 hours a day.

Currently in the CRCAS has the capacity to accommodate 16 people between

If the weather conditions allow it, you can camp in a suitable area to
enjoy the sounds of the night in direct contact with nature. The
rainy season is from November to January.
