Santa Martha Rescue Center
Santa Martha Rescue Center is an animal sanctuary located in the Andean mountains of Ecuador, South America. Assisted by volunteers, we are responsible for rescuing a wide variety of wild animals from unhealthy and illegal situations, which have been the victims of animal-trafficking or mistreatment. Santa Martha Rescue Center is situated in an area of the Andes called the "avenue of volcanoes", a beautifully scenic part of rural Ecuador surrounded by rolling hills and majestic volcanoes, less than an hour south of Quito. Our volunteers are offered a unique opportunity to care for and help rehabilitate a diverse variety of wild animals. These normally include monkeys, cats, bears, reptiles, and parrots amongst many others. Whether volunteers stay a few weeks or a few months, Santa Martha will provide an amazing animal experience, while living in a cosy friendly environment in beautiful Ecuador.
