Volunteer with Animals in the Amazon
AmaZoonico is an NGO founded in 1993 by Angelika Raimann, Remigio Canelos and Christine von Steiger. Their vision was to protect the Amazon wildlife by creating a center to receive, treat, rehabilitate and reintroduce wild animals confiscated from illegal trafficking.
To carry out all plans of reintroduction it was important to create a project to protect the forest and work with the community to manage resources sustainably and rationally. This objective resulted in the creation of Selva Viva; a large area of 1700 hectares of protected forest, a trilingual school for children from the neighboring community and two eco-lodges.
