The Animal Academy
Description: The Animal Academy is a non-profit organization founded by a team of veterinary professionals, created out of two main needs: • Rescue and shelter all those farm animals victims of abuse and neglect. • Educate and raise awareness among the local population regarding environmental education and eco-activism, with a special focus on school-age children and the tourist groups that each year choose us as a holiday destination
Type of Work: During the development of the project, numerous rescues have been carried out in collaboration with the Local Police and the Nature Protection Service (SEPRONA) of the Civil Guard of Fuerteventura, working side by side with the mutual goal of giving visibility to animal abuse and eradicating it from its roots, but above all through raising awareness with the local Majorero population, starting with the youngest of them.
Accommodation: Accommodation will be provided in a shared studio with other volunteers, if any. The accommodation has single beds, a bathroom, kitchen and common areas within the refuge facilities.
Requirements: It is important to bring comfortable work clothes and closed boots or shoes. It is also recommended to use sun protection cream and something to protect against mosquitoes. Bring clothing you can layer since it is usually cool during the first hours of the morning and at night (i.e. 14-17 degrees celsius), whilst at midday the temperature can be quite elevated (25 - 30 degrees celsius).
