Since I’ve always taken an interest in nature and wildlife I was super excited about getting to work in an animal shelter project. The huge variety of species, the magnificent scenery of a rainforest and the day-by-day work with exotic animals all proved to be everything I expected it to be and more.

You are going to do a lot of construction and maintenance work, which can be exhausting due the heat and the insects but don’t worry, the charming silliness of the animals will be sure to keep a smile on your face at all times. Also, for me it was fascinating to observe the interaction and relationships between distinct species in their natural environment. Guiding tourist groups from all over the world, as well as adapting to the cultural differences and this simple way of life, showed me a more outgoing and spontaneous side of myself that I didn’t know I had.

If you are a person who works autonomously and does not depend on being given assignments to get moving, you will enjoy improving the Shelter bit by bit and thinking of ideas to create better conditions for visitors and animals alike. In the end you will not only have made a difference to the project, but it will, and I can guarantee you, have been a changing experience for you as well.
