Mission Statement

Pilpintuwasi is a wildlife rescue and temporary custody center located on 20 hectares of land in the village of Padre Cocha. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting animals affected by the poaching and trafficking industry which thrives in Iquitos. We work with the ecological police to take in animals confiscated from markets, airports and homes, which often arrive with injuries and malnourishment.

Description

We believe in a semi-captive environment; once recovered many of our animals live free of cages or in enclosures mimicking their natural environment. We have many species living with us- various monkey species, coatis, capybara, ocelot, jaguar and more. We also have a butterfly house on the property where we breed and display many species of butterflies
