Amazing Experience

could not pick a favourite thing about this project if I tried!! The owner of the shelter is so genuinely passionate about the animals and their care - she remembers the names and stories of every animal that has come through the shelter. The project aims to release as many of the animals that come through as possible - they have already done many successful releases! Time at the project mostly spent preparing food for and taking food to all the animals there, as well as general maintenance around the project. I was extremely lucky when I was at the project as there were 2 babies (a baby sloth & a baby howler monkey) being hand cared for until they were old enough and strong enough to go into their own enclosures and I got to assist with their care! It was an unforgettable experience.
