In addition, we have a number of "virtual" volunteers based in the U.S. who help with all sorts of things via the internet. Currently Stephanie Lugo is our super duper social media volunteer, and Sarita Patel is our fabulous blog editor, who also was in Iquitos last July volunteering as a Vet Assistant for 2 weeks! Read more about Sarita's experience in these three exciting posts: "Bienvenido a la Selva", "Adventures in Cat Catching" and "A Great Fix". We are currently recruiting more volunteers to help us grow our organization- we need help with everything from grant writing, to translation services, to a fundraising coordinator. For more information about our virtual volunteer opportunities, check out our website here!
