The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary has so many dedicated volunteers that come out, visit the animals, and are a HUGE help to the staff and residents of IEAS! Often times, these volunteers come and go, and we love to get updates on their lives and travels. One such volunteer recently had the chance to volunteer at a wildlife reserve in Ecuador and sent us news of her exciting new adventure:
"After two weeks of laboring under the canopy of the Amazon rainforest, building enclosures, carrying incredible red wood trees through the forest, and enjoying the company of beautiful animals, I sit here in an internet cafe in Quito, and enjoy the lovely smell of clean laundry and the millions of people that trek by my window. How's that for ya? Ecuador is amazing!! I have so many pictures and now I'm waiting to head off to Otavalo which is the largest market in South America! Hope everyone is well! :)"
Many of our volunteers do awesome things after they help out at the Sanctuary, just like Ecuador and even places such as Alaska!
