We rehabilitate wild animals

We take in wild animals who were victims of illegal trafficking, rehabilitate them and reintroduce them back into their natural habitats.

We take care of those who can't be released, and carry out environmental education activities with visitors



We're an NGO, so we can only continue helping animals thanks to your donations. Because of you they have a second chance.

Start in Tena, find one of the bus terminals "Jumandy" or "Centinela del Tena". Take a bus to "Puerto Barantilla" ($2.40/1:30h). At Puerto Barantilla wait for a motor canoe and ask the driver to take you to amaZOOnico (10min). The frequency and cost of the canoe rides varies a lot, so we recommend you to order a canoe by calling Liana Lodge: (+593) 6 301 7702
