Pod Volunteer – Sloth & Wildlife Rescue in Costa Rica – All Year

The project provides a safe haven for over 50 animals including sloths, monkeys, birds and anteaters, and rescues a number of new animals each week.

The aim for newly rescued animals is that are treated in the on-site clinic and then quickly returned to the wild when they are healthy again. Human interaction is minimised to help them rehabilitate safely to the wild and only a small clinical team looks after these animals.

For those animals which are too badly injured or not able to be released for other reasons, they are provided with a permanent home at the sanctuary and this is where you will be helping. You will assist in a variety of tasks helping the animals in the sanctuary, including:*Preparing food *Providing food and water for the animals *Cleaning and maintaining the enclosures *Maintenance work around the sanctuary – there is always lots to be done!

The project is located in the heart of the tropical forest in the region of Quepos, about 30 minutes from the popular destination of Manuel Antonio National Park which is famous for its stunning beaches and abundance of wildlife. The local area is sparsely populated and provides a tranquil environment
