Rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife in the Ecuadorian rain forest to offer the animals a good life quality in their natural habitat.
We are always looking for motivated volunteers who would love to help animals at the center. It would be a pleasure to welcome you. The project is located in Puyo, on 1 hectare of the forest and we welcome injured & orphaned animals, mostly monkeys. We have around 150 animals with seven species of monkeys, coatis, parrots, turtles, ocelots, wild rodents and pigs and the first serpentarium of the province for the rescue of snakes.
The shelter “El Paseo de los Monos” works as a center of adoption: orphans are placed into familiar groups according to the specie.
