  • It is important to call ahead to schedule a visit. The site is undergoing a restructuring to improve visitation but, even so, it pays to know the work done at the site. Is charged a fee of R$15,00 per person for maintenance and care of the animals.

  • We were met by Tony, who was very attentive and the explanations about the species that were there. It is important to stress that this is not a Zoo, but a place with animals arising from seizure of IBAMA and with many alligators of the yellow chat. Thus the animals on display vary according to what is there at the moment. But alligators are a constant and it is possible to hold a puppy. The location is recast and deserves encouragement, because it has a lot of potential. Recommend!!! PS.: by Waze access is difficult (dirt road beside the road)

  • Although we read that the location of the site Arurá was difficult, with the aid of Waze found the site with ease. Leaving Holambra, are approximately 6 kilometers (less than 10 minutes). On the road for a trailer with sugar cane juice in front of the exit onto the dirt road. Getting there we found out that there was a change in the management team and the thoughtful Toni, who is working there for only 3 months and already know a lot about animals. He answered us with calm that explained the history of the site Arurá and of animals that are rescued by IBAMA on account of ill-treatment and/or conduct to keep captive wild animals/not allowed. On the site they are treated well and, if possible, are returned to nature, as occurred recently with a blue macaw. Pay R$ 15.00 per person and the ride lasted more than 1 hour. We could feed the goats, get baby rabbits and Guinea pigs, see an OWL and a bird of prey up close, pigs and monkey, as well as other birds, learn more and visit the alligators of chat-yellow and even hold a puppy, as well as holding a Gibóia. The alligators of yellow chat site is created only to breed and their young are released in the wild. Don't expect to find a Zoo, the place is simple but very interesting for animals and for the work done, he deserves every support and encouragement to continue to be made.
