Taking decisive action in the here and now, from our facility in the highway from Iquitos to Nauta, in the Peruvian Amazon, RAREC aims to educate and inform, as much as rescue. Our efforts are directly linked to the survival of at-risk specimens of threatened species from the Amazon river basin. Our main focus is the Amazon river manatee, but we are also involved in the conservation efforts of other regional species.
Just as important as our rescue efforts are our outreach programs. We engage in education and information campaigns at a local level, and with your help, we will be able to reach more people around the world.
