An animal at the wildlife sanctuary in Ecuador“I knew the sanctuary was excellent from the research I made in advance, but experiencing it was definitely something different.I have a lot of respect for all the people that contribute in the effort to combat these issues, the staff at the santuary and Oyster for giving people the opportunity to help too. Excellent contact with Anne and Monika and my great thanks to both!”

An animal at the wildlife sanctuary in Ecuador“It was honestly amazing and I don’t regret a second of it! I recommend for people to travel aboard and experience the things I did, and you’re never really too old! I do miss Ecuador a lot! It was a beautiful country and I wish I had more time to travel. Thanks a bunch for your help with this experience Anne! I have memories I’ll never forget!”

“I’m absolutely loving it here! The staff are all incredibly friendly and I’ve had so many great experiences here that I never thought I’d get to do, and have seen so many animals that I didn’t even know existed.”

We have been into town a few times to be a part of the carnival activities, such as seeing the parade, enjoying ice cream and being sprayed with foam and paint! The place is amazing, and Ecuador is fantastic also”

Ecuador wildlife volunteering colourful parrot“The hands-on experience was incredible and not something that you are able to do everyday. I’ve never had a dull moment with them and always found myself laughing while around them. The people here are really lovely and the whole experience is just simply amazing! Oyster Worldwide is by far the best gap year travel agency I have worked with. They made sure every small detail was taken care of and informed me of all of the possibilities that I would experience while in Ecuador. I would definitely recommend them.”
