Volunteers need to be relatively physically fit, interested in conservation and breeding efforts, and mindful around the enclosures (especially around the big cats). No previous experience or education is required, but a background in biology or some Portuguese is helpful. This is an ideal placement for volunteers who are looking to spend some time in nature and who are not afraid of getting dirty.
