The project aims to improve the habitat of opossums in the sanctuary, 'Keeper of the Wild,' by providing suitable and functional spaces that offer comfort and facilities for their stay.

This will be achieved by acquiring better accommodations that allow for a more hygienic, comfortable, and secure environment for both the opossums and the volunteers responsible for their care.

What is the problem?

At the Sanctuary where opossums are kept, there is a special room for their care. Each family that arrives is placed in a cage according to their size and provided with enough food and water for a whole day. They are also provided with a designated area resembling a 'burrow,' where they spend most of their time as they are nocturnal animals.

The place where they sleep is a kind of plastic container, which is lined with a pillowcase. Many times, it is uncomfortable for both the volunteers and the animals because they often end up soiling the same bed, as they are trapped inside the same sleeping area. It is a stressful and fearful experience for both the volunteers and the animals, particularly for the animals. Moreover, it consumes a significant amount of time, especially during this season when the 

sanctuary is overcrowded with over 120 opossums, not to mention the number of raccoons, foxes, squirrels, etc., that arrive at the sanctuary daily for rehabilitation

Solution

  • Provide a more suitable and comfortable environment for opossums in the sanctuary.

  • Improve cleanliness and sanitation conditions in the opossums' resting area.

  • Facilitate cleaning and care tasks for the sanctuary volunteers.

Although it doesn't solve 100% of the sanctuary's many needs, it does help save time for the volunteers, allowing them to assist in other areas that the sanctuary requires if they had more time.

Based on our experience and helping Keeper of the Wild, these small improvements make the opossums comfortable and make it much easier for volunteers to handle and clean them.

These burrows provide a safe refuge for various species and are a tangible way to support our conservation efforts.

How can you help us?

Our goal is to provide approximately 100 of these habitats in different sizes, colors, and textures, creating an improved habitat for opossums in the sanctuary, offering comfort to both the animals and the volunteers. This will allow for a more pleasant stay for the animals and facilitate the cleaning and care activities for the volunteers, promoting harmonious coexistence and an optimal environment for the preservation of these charming creatures.
