Results and support

Over the past years we have had great results - implementing many successful rehabilitations. The list of reintroduced animals includes: tamarin monkeys (3 groups), three and two toed sloths (around 100), kinkajous (19), a Neotropical otter (see documentary), several felines (margay, ocelots and oncillas), agoutis, anteaters, armadillos, boas, coatis.and even parrots.

Rehabilitation programs
We will continue to responsibly releasing animals. We never know what tomorrow brings and sometimes we focus our time and energy on a new arrival, especially if it has a good prospect of being released and time is of the essence. Our longer term goals include a release program for woolly monkeys and red howler monkeys. Rehabilitation of social and intelligent animals such as primates, take a lot of investigation, observation and money.

blue headed parrots flyingThe past year we implemented a groundbreaking and succesful release of a group of 15 blue-headed parrots: a unique happening in Ecuador.You can read an official report here.Three initially remained quite tame and stayed close to the centre but the rest either formed their own group or were adopted by an already excisting group near the Merazonia reserve. But we also released: 30 three and two toed sloths, 2 kinkajous, 1 coati, 3 owls, 1 hawk, 3 possums and 7 boas.
