Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. Even though the country has only about 0.25% of the world's landmass it contains 5% of the world's biodiversity. Both tropical plant and animal species abound in Costa Rica. The country is home to more than 200 species of mammals and more than 800 species of birds. Volunteers working in this program mainly work with animal victims of repossession, loss of habitat and accidents from all corners of the country who are brought in by local officials. Many are able to be back to health and released back into their natural habitat.

The most important requirements for the Wildlife Rescue Volunteer Program are hard working skills, being ecologically sensitive, willing to learn about new cultures and the most important one: enthusiasm. In most of the projects, there will be a volunteer coordinator in charge to assign the jobs but you are welcome to help anytime you consider is needed. We appreciate creativity.
