Our mission stresses the importance of man caring for the environment. Our work is dedicated to preservation, education, investigation and recreation, as suggested by IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature). Pumakawa is a 2-hectare natural reserve in Villa Rumipal, Córdoba, Argentina. The puma is our emblem. We strive to create awareness of the puma’s condition in Córdoba as well as the rest of the country. Through education and investigation, we have created programs to improve the status quo of the flora and fauna that enrich the puma’s habitat. The puma being not only an umbrella species is a keystone species, the biodiversity and abundance of other species is directly linked to its presence. We also have other rescued animals.
Pumakawa is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our environment.
Pumakawa is about 90 km’s southwest of the city of Cordoba, looking towards the Andes. We rescue a host of different wild animals. Many are victims of the illegal pet trade or have survived attacks by hunters. If they cannot be released back into the wild after rehabilitation, we give them a home for life.
Our objective is to create a connection between man and nature; through this connection people develop compassion and a sense of responsibility towards Mother Nature.
Volunteers form an important part of our workforce. Pumakawa offers a variety of areas in which the volunteer can unfold themselves. Volunteers have come from all over the world with open hearts ready to lend a hand. In return, we offer training in areas such as construction with alternative materials, nutrition and wild animal handling, tourism, conservation, etc. We invite the volunteer to share an unforgettable experience in Pumakawa nature reserve.
