Echo Foundation Bonaire is looking for wildlife enthusiasts with a passion for parrots to join us in caring for our Yellow-shouldered Amazon Parrots, locally known as "Loras." Our work involves the daily care, husbandry, and rehabilitation of these parrots, as well as contributing to our breeding and education ambassador programs.
No prior experience is necessary, as our team of parrot specialists on the island will provide comprehensive training. What we value most are individuals who share our dedication to the welfare of these magnificent birds, possess resourcefulness, and are self-starters. It's also important to be comfortable with a very basic, off-grid, and remote living situation in shared accommodations which are provided to all volunteers.
If this opportunity resonates with you, we invite you to apply for the role by visiting our website and selecting "Apply for the Parrot Husbandry Volunteer Position." Should you have any questions that aren't covered in our FAQ section please don't hesitate to email me here.
