The rescue center take care of all animals delivered to them. It is a nonprofit organization that only rely on donations and sales of tour tickets and souvenirs. Most of the workers are volunteers that sign up for a minimum of 4 weeks. They get no salary, no food and no accommodation. Our guide was a volunteer and she had sign up for 4 weeks, one and a half year ago. She was still there.
