Florida Animal Rescue

  • Orlando, FL, US

Florida, nicknamed the sunshine state, is one of the world's most beautiful destinations, bustling with friendly people and exotic wildlife. There is a wide variety of things to do and see, with its white sandy beaches, subtropical wilderness, and of course, the home of some of the world's most famous theme parks. Millions of people visit Florida each year to experience the Everglades National Park, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. Here visitors have the chance to see the diverse and exotic wildlife that resides there, including over 30 of the world's endangered or threatened species like the West Indian Manatee, American Alligator and the Everglades Snail Kite.

Join this extraordinary project and help to provide a better life for the many rescued animals including big cats, wolves, bears, primates, and bats. The centre rescues wild animals that are held in inappropriate captive situations and greatly mistreated. This sanctuary provides a safe haven for these animals where they are given an enriching and secure environment. Additionally you may also get the amazing opportunity to work alongside the State of Florida in the rehabilitation and release of orphaned wild black bear cubs. The centre releases all black bears that come into their care back into the wild as soon as they are strong enough.

WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?

The Florida Animal Rescue Sanctuary is a refuge for animals that have been saved from a lifetime of mistreatment and neglect. Without this refuge, these animals would lead miserable lives. This fantastic project aims to provide them with the best possible care in an environment as close to their natural habitat as possible. Your participation on this project will be a tremendous help and will greatly improve the efforts of the sanctuary in reaching its goals of improving the lives of many animals.

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Working alongside local staff, volunteers help with the day to day care of the animals and the education of the sanctuary's visitors. You will be involved in every aspect of the running of the centre, including feeding the animals and preparing the food, cleaning, building and repairing the enclosures, and also making enrichments and feeding platforms. Volunteer contact with the animals is carefully monitored as the safety of both animals and the volunteers is paramount.
