About 1-Day Volunteer Application

Our day volunteer experience is a great chance to visit Kids Saving the Rainforest and give back during your vacation!

We offer the program Monday, Wednesday and Friday only so please select one of these days when choosing your date. The program runs from 9 am- 4 pm. The minimum age requirement is 18 for volunteers on their own, but kids aged 12-17 are welcome with adult supervision, making this a great family experience!

The cost for the program is $125 a person for 2 people, and for groups larger than two the cost is $100 a person. The rate includes transportation to and from locations in the Manuel Antonio and Quepos area, and a prepared lunch.

The day will begin with a fun & informative 2-hour guided tour of the Wildlife Sanctuary. This will be followed by refreshments and a short activity with a Zookeeper or a Biologist before lunch. You will sit down for a prepared meal in our restaurant where you will get the chance to interact with our staff, interns, & long-term volunteers. After lunch you will complete the main volunteer activity for the day. The nature of this activity will vary, but will likely include some form of providing enrichment to the animals who make their homes in the sanctuary.

While you will not be handling the animals, this is a great chance to get up close and personal with them!
