Corporate volunteering with wildlife occurs in the companies most committed to the environment and the restoration of nature.
Costa Rica preserves a great diversity in both plants and animals. Natural resources are constantly threatened by urban planning, hunting, agriculture, and many more human-related factors (anthropogenic factors). For this reason, many companies are committed to the care of the environment by carrying out ecological practices within their facilities.
In order to preserve the Natural Capital of Costa Rica, many companies carry out activities that foster a green culture among their employees. In addition, recycling, proper management of wastewater, use of biodegradable products, among others are environmentally friendly initiatives that they carry out. Also, through corporate volunteering with wild animals.
Opportunities for business volunteers
NATUWA Wildlife Sanctuary is a leading voice for wildlife and nature. This is how, for more than 24 years, we have worked to protect, preserve and restore some of Costa Rica’s most emblematic habitats and species. With the desire to preserve the Natural Capital for future Costa Rican generations.
The actions of corporate volunteering with wild animals play an important role in our ecological restoration work. Every year, dozens of volunteers from companies around the country help wildlife and ecological restoration. They carry out activities in NATUWA by planting trees, rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing those animals that have the possibility of returning to their natural environments. And to those who do not, providing all the necessary attention so that they live with dignity in sanctuary.
In addition, these companies committed to nature and their teams of Corporate Volunteers will partner with our staff and International Volunteers to carry out environmental enrichment activities with jaguars, tapirs, sloths, macaws, monkeys, and other animals species.
Enriching human perception about nature
By reconnecting today’s people outdoors, on the paths of the Sanctuary is where educators and students learn how to support local wildlife. The NATUWA trails are true wildlife habitats turned into outdoor classrooms where volunteers learn about species and ecosystems of Costa Rica, improve their academic skills and nurture their innate curiosity and creativity.
