Background of the Project
One of the most threatened natural resources in the Amazon Rainforest is the wildlife, which can suffer from habitat destruction, unsustainable hunting, and traps set by illegal animal hunters. Orchids, parrots, monkeys, and more than 20 thousand exotic animal and plant species have distinguished Ecuador as one of the countries with the most biodiversity in the world. Imagine falling asleep to the sounds of jaguars and waking up to the caws of parrots and other exotic birds. Not only is all that a reality at the Wildlife Rescue Center, but you also get to hold and play with these animals and be responsible for feeding them. Who else can boast of such an experience?
