(4.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Peer into the life of some of Ecuador's most rare and endangered species at Amazoonico Animal Rescue Centre. Located in the Ecuadorian Amazon, the reserve works to rehabilitate victims of illegal animal trafficking into the wild. All of the animals have suffered some trauma, and many have physical and behavioral problems that threaten their ability to survive on their own. The reserve offers these animals a chance for survival in sheltered living conditions as close as possible to their natural habitat. Learn more about the adventures that brought the animals here and the work being done to rehabilitate them with a tour through the reserve.
