Great news: Merazonia is open for volunteers! For those eager for an adventure, we have listed all the extra safety procedures currently in place at Merazonia. Volunteers from Europe, America and Ecuador are also willing to answer questions or you can e-mail or WhatsApp us.

Oh Whistler, if only you could tell us of the adventures you've been on! 

Three weeks ago, during a big storm, a large tree fell onto kinkajou Whistler's enclosure and he ventured out into the jungle... alone. 

With the support of Giving Way Ecuador we are looking to raise $30,000 to build an innovative open-air enclosure for our woolly group. It will be 1500m² and will encompass large trees, vines and natural structures - the next best thing to being wild! The enclosure will also play a vital role in the rehabilitation of other species in the future. Learn more here

 

 

Volunteer numbers are up again and new animal projects on their way. Our latest success story is the release of a group of tamarin monkeys and... they had babies! We also saw solitary eagles, gave an owl back its freedom and have a scoop to share: Merazonia is on international TV soon!

Despite a very challenging year, we managed to help and set free a lot of animals. There was the spectacular release of two yaguarundis for example and we captured an elusive bush dog on our trap camera. But none of this would have been possible without the suport of our growing community of donors!

Merazonia is alive and kicking! The volunteers, donors and our Give us 5! community, are pulling us through the dark pandemic months. We even managed to release many animals, including a second group of red howlers, Toby the tayra and… breaking news:  Anku and Nuna, the two jaguarundis.

Both the renowned English newspaper The Guardian as well as the BBC paid attention to the struggle wildlife centres around the world face in times of corona. A ;pt pf centres struggle with income and cfinding caretakers. You can read the article here or watch the BBC-item. They both feature Merazonia and some of our more adorable animals.

A forest free of human dangers brings back biodiversity. In 15 years the Merazonia reserve has gone through an amazing recovery. Emblematic animals such as the jaguar and the Andean bear are appearing again! On our YouTube canal you can find videos of animals filmed by our trail cameras.
