​Chiloé, Chile's second largest island, lies in the south of Chile and is characterized by a high biodiversity and untouched nature. Since 2009, this volunteer project has set itself the task of protecting and preserving the flora and fauna of the island.

The project cares for wildlife that could not survive in its natural habitat due to injury or disease. They are medically treated and cared for in the center. If they are well again, they will, if possible, be released back to freedom. Residents of the center are penguins, beavers, deer, eagles, foxes, sea lions and sporadically other animals (animal species can change at any time!).

In addition, the center's team looks after the local community's environmental and animal welfare education, and from time to time realizes lectures at local schools.

In this project you can get to know a very original corner of Chile off the tourist routes, because: "Santiago no es Chile", as the Chileans say and on Chiloé that is particularly true. The island has its own rhythm of life, its own customs, music, stories and not least its own gastronomy. To live on Chiloé is a bit like falling out of time - ideal for a break from the hectic everyday life.
