  • We came here because it was included in the Tour to the Ecuadorian Amazon. According to the Guide, here rescued animals of traffic recover. At first glance the view is well care, quite natural environments. But many animals looks conveyed sorrow, so we went out there with a strange feeling.

  • This Zoo is basically an institution where take care of rescued animals basically. Save in cages and care for and after a while return the animals to the wild. A very beautiful work. The place is not very big, but the variety of animals is.

  • Sad to see how poorly these animals were treated before being rescued, good to see them doing better now.
  • This was one of my favorite parts about visiting Equador. This refuge is full of animals that were kept illegally and have been rescued. They have a number of cats, birds, monkeys, and some unique animals to the region. It only costs a dollar or two for the entrance fee.
  • cute animals.
