Join the KSTR Wildlife Sanctuary Volunteer for a Day experience to immerse yourself in the life of a zookeeper. Enjoy a tour of the sanctuary, help to clean the enclosures, and prepare meals for sloths, monkeys, parrots, and more. A buffet lunch is included. Start the day with a tour of the sanctuary to get to know all the animals that you’ll be working with for the rest of the day. Meet sloths, monkeys, coatis, parrots, and more. Learn about the stories of these unique animals and the care they receive from your dedicated guide.  During your tour, learn about the mission of the organization. Discover the work the sanctuary has been carrying out over the last 20 years and learn about their special projects, including reforestation and rehabilitation projects. You will also learn how you can help to conserve the rainforest. Afterward, help the zookeepers to clean out the enclosures or provide mental and physical enrichment activities to the animals. Stop for lunch at La Vaca Azul Restaurant, where you’ll enjoy a delicious buffet-style lunch and take some time to cool down by the pool before going back to work. After your own lunch, help to prepare lunch for the animals, including chopping vegetables and making sure each animal has their own bowl. Once the prep is complete, walk with the zookeeper and get the chance to food each of the animals and check they are eating properly.
