The objective of the program is to collaborate in the conservation and care of animals, returning them to their natural habitat and helping to reduce the negative impact created by the lack of awareness in their care as well as their natural habitat.

Because of overexploitation and illegal trafficking, many animals are injured or left orphaned. The Center helps these animals recover, returning them to their natural habitat after healing their wounds and ensuring they are autonomous.

You can contribute to their care through various activities; therefore, it is not required to have specific knowledge about them. However, a good attitude and respect for animals are important. All activities will always be carried out under the supervision of the organization's staff; volunteers will be integrated into a group under the responsibility of a project coordinator.

Volunteers can also be part of the following activities:
- Care of the animals
- Providing animal welfare and learning to manage the animals to avoid domestication
- Re-introducing the animals to their natural areas
- Daily feeding of animals
- Support in environmental enrichment programs
