Description

Take part in this Globe Aware volunteer travel program in Costa Rica and get to see the country’s natural beauty while contributing to the rescue and rehabilitation of native animals.

The Costa Rica Animal Rehabilitation is a service vacation program, wherein you’ll volunteer in a project that aims to rehabilitate different tropical species. Have the opportunity to see marmosets (one of the world’s smallest primates!), spider monkeys, sloths, toucans, and other animals. You will work in a sanctuary that cares for and rehabilitates injured or illegally held captive animals. Help with essential tasks, such as preparing fruits and vegetables for the animals as well as feeding and bathing them. You will also carry out yard work, gardening, and cleaning.

Volunteers stay on site, in a dormitory-style accommodation with 6-12 persons in the room. Meals consist of fresh, healthy Costa Rican dishes.

Globe Aware's Mission Statement

Globe Aware seeks to promote lifelong advocates for a better world and to sustain the world's cultural and natural resources. The organization, together with the local community hosts, develops effective local solutions to global problems in non-religious, non-political, multi-international environments. The aim is to expand and foster cross-cultural peace and understanding between Americans and the rest of the world, to preserve culture and promote sustainability. Globe Aware expeditions provide volunteers the opportunity to live and work side by side with a host community. The hosts provide a safe and interesting setting in which to learn, help, and have fun. The volunteers help to empower the host communities in creating renewable, self-sufficient programs. While Globe Aware's financial assistance benefits the community economically, it is actually the involvement and collaboration between the volunteers and community that is the greatest mutual benefit.
