Volunteering in Ecuador-Justine Martin

Hi All;
I really need some help! I have recently decided to participate in an overseas volunteer program in Ecuador from June-August this summer (last minute I know...).
I will be volunteering with an animal rehabilitation center so the site is located right in the heart of the Ecuadorian rain forest. The center is mostly for animals who have been taken out of their natural habitat to be pets, and then returned once people get tired of them or they grow too big but there are also wild animals who have been injured. I will be dealing with three stages of animal care while I'm there; access those who have just been admitted, working with those who are in the process of rehabilitation and providing long term care for those who unfortunately cannot be released back into the wild. Each day duties will include venturing into the jungle to collect food for the animals as well as feeding and cleaning them, constructing and maintaining habitats, as well as "enrichment projects" where you observe the animals and try to come up with ways to keep them entertained and stimulated while still in captivity. If you would like to know more are this organization or my specific program feel free to visit http://www.workandvolunteer.com/programme/?pgid=360 or email me!
The program fee for 8 weeks and the round-trip flight will total roughly $2400 and I'm looking for donations to help me in covering this cost. Any donation will help, every dollar counts, but if you are unable to donate I just ask that you forward this email to your contact list!
Thanks so much for all the help and support,
Justine Martin
