Overview

Volunteers will support the care and rehabilitation of rescued animals such as parrots, macaws, monkeys, reptiles, and more while learning all about the threats that these animals face and how they can be combated.

Your work directly impacts animal welfare. By offering consistent support through preparing food and maintaining enclosures, you ensure the best chance for the animals’ daily improvement, leading to an eventual release back into the wild. Find out more.

Additionally, you will be working side by side with veterinarians and animal welfare specialists to learn about species-specific behaviour, habitat, and needs, all while gaining insight into the big picture of wildlife conservation in Guatemala.

The project also operates an educational facility, where local and international visitors can learn about the consequences of the exotic animal’s trade and learn of the importance of supporting wildlife conservation efforts.

About us

Natucate — our name intentionally combines the English words ‘nature’ and (to) ‘educate’, because it is our aim to reconcile nature and education. We offer nature tourism and voluntary service abroad and concentrate on the domains nature conservation, environmental and animal protection. Natucate does not only target school-leavers, students and graduates, who may want to gather valuable experience, but it is also aimed at working people and over 50s, who are looking for a way to broaden their horizons in an unforgettable and at the same time meaningful way.

Our advice and travel service is specialized in the organization of selected projects for voluntary service, but in addition we also work out longer individual tour proposals and if requested arrange them, if they fall within the context of nature/adventure tours.
