Walking felines on a rope through the jungle
Volunteering in this place was amazing. It's a camp close to guarayos in the middle of the jungle. Parque Ambue Ari is one of three parks in Bolivia. The organization Communidad Inti Wara Yassi gets felines like jaguars, pumas and ocelots as well as spider monkeys, birds and other animals that lived in bad conditions in captivity. The government and other people save those animals but they wouldn't be able to live in the jungle on their own. CIWY tries to give those animals the best possible life in captivity. Volunteers live in the camp and are able to work with an animal. Part of the work is preparing their food, cleaning the cage, walking them through the jungle and giving affection. You also have to do some tasks in the morning to keep the camp clean and tidy. Minimum stay is two weeks Minimum stay for working with felines is 30 days.
