Working with indigenous communities for conservation

Take care of the whole place and volunteer training with animals

We promote action on welfare, animal conservation, and preservation. Our objective is to create a custody and management centre for wildlife rehabilitation. We support indigenous communities, as well as governmental and non-governmental institutions in the development and implementation of conservationist projects.

We also promote and advice organisations in the development and evaluation of cultural and conservationist programs being respectful of the native traditions. We strive to develop transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and multidisciplinary training programs to indigenous people and public officials from the area.

We want to thank you for considering collaborating with us as a volunteer. Our ambitious journey will never come to a successful conclusion unless it has the support of people like you; people who share our ideals. ONCA is taking its first steps and the workflow is not completely structured. This initial volunteering is distinguished by an unwavering willingness to face the daily reality of strengthening the operational foundations of the organisation.

We do not require a lot of time working since the rustic camp conditions could become difficult for volunteers unaccustomed to the environment of the Bolivian Amazon.

What are you waiting for?

We at ONCA Wildlife Sanctuary would love to hear from you!
