From manatees to river otters to anteaters, Amazonian creatures are illegally captured, taken from their homes, and sentenced to a tragic end. Some will linger for years, in terrible captivity. Others will be slaughtered for food. Our mission is to stop the poachers, and to give their victims a new lease on life.
The Rainforest Awareness Rescue and Education Center is a certified wildlife rescue center, operating thirty miles from the city of Iquitos, in the Peruvian Amazon. We are authorized by the Peruvian government to operate as a wildlife center, and we work in close cooperation with the Peruvian Environmental police, to rescue and rehabilitate animals in danger. From our base of operations in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, we rescue wild animals in danger, to bring them to our facility for treatment, as we prepare them, if it is possible, for their return to the wild.
