ATTENTION! Registration for the Summer Volunteer Program and the R3 Animal Internship Program 2021/1 is now open. For more information visit theĀ  Volunteers tab.


Our mission is to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Reintegrate wild animals into their habitat.

Our professional volunteers assist the Environmental Military Police/CETAS of Santa Catarina and the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Natural Resources / IBAMA for treating and rescuing wild animals which have been seized or have been victims of human action in Santa Catarina. We work for the reintegration of animals to their ecosystem, and those animals that cannot be released are transferred to zoos and breeders licensed by IBAMA. We strive to improve the welfare of each individual during the process of rehabilitation and post-release.

We also instruct and train members of local communities to become guardians of the environment. We dedicate our efforts to improve the situation of wildlife and ensure a balanced future for our community.

Since R3 animal is a non-profit organization, it depends on donations and volunteer help to survive.
We count on your help to continue saving lives!
