Hi everyone!

I'm going to be volunteering in 4 wildlife sanctuaries this summer. My planned itinerary for now is:

Bolivia, Parque Machia (near Santa Cruz, part of the Inti Wara Yassi organisation), for all of May. Will be flying through Santa Cruz. http://www.intiwarayassi.org/articles/volunteer_animal_refuge/volunteer_parque_machia.html

Ecuador, Merazonia wildlife sanctuary(in a small town called Mera in the Andes) for all of June. Flying through Quito.

Costa Rica, not positive yet but maybe two weeks at La Marina (http://www.zoocostarica.com/volunteersneeded54.html), and then either La Tortuga Feliz (http://www.latortugafeliz.com/) or Playa Tortuga (http://www.reservaplayatortuga.org/volunteer.htm#EXAMPLE) for two weeks. Flying through San Jose. This would be in July

Guatemala in August, ARCAS sanctuary in Peten for 3-4 weeks. Flying through Guatemala City then Flores. http://www.arcasguatemala.com/

Then maybe maybe a small diving trip if I have enough time and money. But we'll see for that.

Anyone interested in joining me, even for a bus trip, let me know! I look forward to hearing from you!
