Help CIWY raise awareness by spreading our message about wildlife conservation, the work we do, and the opportunity to volunteer with us! Our sanctuaries always need volunteers, and most of them arrive by word of mouth. Here are some ideas on how to spread the word:
Speak at schools and events
Give a talk at your university, at events, or for associations (especially those involved in conservation, wildlife medicine or zoology) about the need to protect wildlife, the problem of illegal animal trafficking and the importance of rescue centers for the rehabilitation and care of rescued animals.
We have prepared a presentation for school children that you can use. If you are interested, contact us.
Share our volunteer flyer
Help recruit volunteers by posting the flyer at your university, in local animal shelters or in hostels around the world (with their permission, of course).
Download the poster in the language of your choice. You can choose between CMYK or RGB color modes for printing. If unsure, go with RGB.
Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY) is a Bolivian Non-Governmental Organisation engaged in protecting wildlife rescued from illegal trafficking and the conservation of ecosystems. Across its three wildlife sanctuaries, CIWY has cared for thousands of animals over the years, providing for them a better quality of life and a future in their natural habitat. CIWY has been in operation since 1992 and is today recognised internationally for its work in wildlife care and rehabilitation.
Part of the extended CIWY family are Friends of Inti Wara Yassi UK and Friends of Inti Wara Yassi Australia, two international nonprofits founded and run by former volunteers to facilitate fundraising and permit tax-deductible donations for British and Australian taxpayers.
