Airport transfer is arranged with local companies to transport interns to and from the International Airport 75 miles to their accommodations. Interns are generally transported to and from the clinic using the clinic vehicle (when available); or interns may be asked to use public transportation. BWRC can not guarantee that a vehicle will be available to interns at all times.
The Wildlife Institute encourages interns and students to take time to visit local sites and participate in activities. Sites visited include Maya Ruins, Beach, Botanical Gardens, Waterfalls, and resorts. Recommended activities include jungle hiking, swimming, kayaking and canoeing, horseback riding and caving. WI staff will recommend service providers and assist in arranging transportation.
Kitchen & Laundry
Interns typically have access to a kitchen with cooking utensils, stove, and basic appliances (as available). Interns must supply their own food. Washer and dryer is generally on-site and may be utilized for a small fee. Otherwise, laundry services are widely available in San Ignacio/Santa Elena.
Filming and Photography
Interns and students are routinely filmed and photographed during BWRC wildlife rescue events. If you are not willing to be on film or in photographs, please inform the photographer on site.
