Animal care and eco-farming in Costa Rica
Wild Sun Rescue Center is a non-profit organization located in Cabuya, Costa Rica. It’s bordered the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, home to hundreds of unique animal and plant species. Wild Sun is not only dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of our local wildlife but also to finding solutions to the problems they are facing.
The mission of the Wild Sun Rescue Center is to have a positive impact on conservation. They do this through rescue, rehabilitation and release of local fauna as well as via reintroduction of locally extinct species.
You can volunteer with Wild Sun in several ways so long as you can commit to staying 2 weeks or longer. You will be trained to care for animals, whether by hand feeding baby animals or even changing bandages, dressing wounds, giving medicine and more. Volunteers support wildlife 6 days a week for 4-8 hours a day depending on current needs, amount of wildlife and number of volunteers present at any given moment.
Interns are offered free room and board for a minimum commitment of 3 months. There is 1 internship position at a time. This position is counted upon to go the extra mile. Interns train other volunteers, work longer hours and do some of the dirty work. This position is very competitive and is chosen about 3 months in advance. Interns are expected to pay a deposit of $500 which will be returned at the end of a stay of the required full term.
