Amazon Animal Welfare Center in Ecuador

amazon animal rescue center ecuador

The overall purpose of the station is to rehabilitate animals that have been abandoned or mistreated. Local officials or citizens usually drop them off so the amount and type of animals varies. Each animal is placed in a separate quarantined space until they were ready to be moved to an enclosure. At the time I was there, they were even preparing to move a black caiman from the quarantine.

Sea Lion in Galapagos

Ever since I read about the beauty of the Galapagos Islands in Rita Goldman’s “The Tales of a Female Nomad” two years ago, it has been my wish to visit the islands and its vibrant array of colorful wildlife. The blue-footed boobies, giant tortoises, and never-ending line of sea lions are enough to entice every different type of traveler.
