About

 The program is a municipal institution where they receive about 500.000 visitors yearly. The center has 200 animals of 41 species. Many of the visitors are school children coming on a school trip to learn about the animals, but also regular visitors come to the park. The program is currently going through renovations, improving and increasing the animal spaces. Your browser does not support the video tag. The volunteer can involve in different areas of the park: - work directly with the veterinarian, making daily rounds, administer medication and vitamins and create a healthy environment for the animals. - Feed the animals and prepare the food - assist with the tours and conferences for groups (mostly school children in Spanish) - assist with the tours and conferences for groups for English speaking visitors - help in the maintenance of the park, building, painting and also cleaning- for people with experience in the health sector, they can learn how to apply injected and oral vaccinations to the animals. -We need veterinarians, pre-veterinarians, and general volunteers.
