Description

By joining this program, volunteers will contribute to preventing the Iberian Wolf's extinction - nowadays the estimations suggest there are about 300 in Portugal - and to preserve its natural habitats. The project takes place in a Center that rescues them from the zoo and other illegal captivities.

During the program, volunteers will participate in a wide range of day-to-day activities, such as:
- Help feed, monitor, and observe the wolves
- Check and refill the wolves’ water supply
- Help with the maintenance of infrastructures and the forested area
- Prevent the onset of fire

The project is open all year round except in December and January, but it should be booked in advance to guarantee availability.

Any person can participate in this program, however, please notice most tasks require medium to heavy physical effort (for example, to carry weights around 8kg/17lb). Additionally, as the Centre is in a forested valley, the ground is irregular and with steep slopes, the volunteers must be able to do this physical effort while walking on those conditions. If there is any detail about your overall health that could interfere in performing such tasks, please let us know.
