We are a rescue center for wild animals victims of illegal trade, at 30 minutes of Puerto Maldonado in the Tambopata touristic corridor. In this shelter, we host 50 animals like howlers, woollies monkeys or parrots, in order to rehabilitate them for a future liberation. We will be happy to show us our work, with a visit of the Center and talking about conservation issue for wildlife.
