Animal Rescue Center Ecuador

We are a conservation centre, Animal Rescue Center Ecuador Animal Rescue Center Ecuadorwith focus on investigations on local wildlife, protection of biodiversity of amazonian rainforest and promotion of self-sufficient living as well as collaboration with local community. We invite everyone interested in those fields, so much individuals as groups. If you would like to become part of our team you are more than welcome. Zanja is situated in the Ecuadorian rainforest, with all its beauty and variety of life forms around. The biggest city close to it is Puyo – more or less 1 hour from the Centre by bus or car. That’s where all the volunteers arrive on their way to Zanja. Puyo is also city where we get our food provisions from.

Most of animals in our Center live free – we look after them and protect their environment but we don’t keep them in cages – unless they are injured or ill. We are not zoological garden but wildlife conservation center, and we believe that animals and humans can live together in harmony, sharing the same space. Life in Zanja is always busy – we have volunteers and researchers doing their jobs according to everyone’s individual schedule. We have plenty of projects to offer for anyone interested – from animal care to work at local school. We always like to adapt to our volunteers’ individual needs and interests and new ideas and suggestions are highly welcome. In Zanja we need people with imagination and initiative, who follow the same priorities and are keen on helping in conservation of this amazing and unique part of the world – the Amazonian Rainforest. If you are still interested and you would like to receive more information and details of projects please don’t hesitate to contact me on this email. You can also find many useful information on our website and Facebook profile. Once you decide to join us we will plan your visit in details – it is important for us to make you feel good and fulfilled while cooperating with Zanja Arajuno.
