  • Very recommendable to appreciate the work of rescue and Liberation of animals in danger. You should support more activity. Manatees are beautiful animals that should be protected by being very noble.

  • My visit to this Center made me remember how valuable it may be wild species whose protection is the object in this rescue Center, has no large facilities or places to display in the animals, but I'll take the noble purpose of meets.

  • The cost of entry is S /. 10.00, will only serve until 3 pm, guide that we had was very kind with us, the place is very well kept, it is worthwhile to pay those 10 soles to continue keeping this place.
