  • The Amazonian Rescue Center is one of the few places where you can interact with the manatees. It is a great project and a good initiative. We hope that they can visit him while in Iquitos.

  • It is a Center who is raising several other animals and mainly manatees that are in danger of extinction and currently has 22 of them. The raising and then release them.

  • It is not a large captive wildlife breeding Center, but the efforts they put to work in conjunction with the work of enthusiastic guides explaining the problems that are facing the species in the wild, makes visit to leave you a great message and a feeling of having learned much.
