This program is located in the Amazon; their main objective is to protect the wild life of the region, taking care of the rescued animals which lived in captivity and semi-captivity until it is time for their re-introduction to their natural habitat, but many times there is not chance to be reintegrated due to health problems or because the animals lived so long captives. Many of the animals at the Rescue Center were victims of illegal traffic or were abandoned by their owners or lived like pets; these are confiscated by the Police by the order of the Environment's Department. The activities of the volunteers start very early, with the preparation of the food which be delivered to the animals by the volunteers or by the staff of the Center. The volunteers are responsible of feeding the animals, to clean their cages, to clean the pads, to built new cages, to assist the veterinary in the cures of the ill animals. Work is manually. The volunteers learn about the Amazonian animal's life, and about other animals from other habitats that were recuperated by the Environmental Police, after a week the volunteers are able to become guides of the Rescue Centre, helping to the centre, incrementing the economic resources for food, medicines and maintenance of the center.
