Merazonia is a dynamic rescue and rehabilitation centre for trafficked and abused Amazonian animals, located on 250 acres of rainforest, in Mera, Ecuador, South America

Cameron, one of our juvenile capuchins

Animals confiscated by the Ministry of Environment and the police, are brought to us where our resident veterinarian gives them their first check-up in our clinic. We are caring for monkeys, kinkajous, cats, other mammals and parrots. Our volunteers help us care for the animals, as well as continue to construct enclosures and trails to improve the centre. We work on both rehabilitating and providing release programs for the animals. If animals are too injured or imprinted for this, we will give them a chance to live as naturally and comfortably as possible.

We also place importance on outreach, education, and research, and plan on implementing local educational programs as well as welcoming international students and researchers. Please explore our site, check out our facebook page and videos on youtube, and click the donate button at the top of the page to see our latest release project.
