What To Expect

Proyecto Asis
On our Tour + Volunteer, you will get the Wildlife Regular Tour plus a short-term volunteering component. During your visit, you will receive a brief introduction about Proyecto Asis from one of our trained naturalist tour guides. Then you will have the opportunity to explore the reserve with our guide to get to know each animal and its story. You will learn about why animal conservation is important, how it should be done, and what impact you are making while enjoying yourself with our friendly guide, who will engage you and help you to think about conservation in a new way. Then you will have the opportunity to learn how to prepare the animals' diet to increase engagement. After preparing the food, you will help us by making enrichment toys that provide a different daily routine for the animals. To follow the directions from our Ministry of Environment, only our staff is allowed to feed the animals. However, this kind of experience is a magnificent way to learn about animal welfare.
