  • This is a small shelter for some animals which were rescued from the jungle, for example a young ocelot which parents were killed by hunters. There are not too many animals- maybe this is a good thing...  more »
  • It is appreciated that there are such centers in the jungle to take care of the animals in difficulty. A lot of love is given to him. Visiting with children is an experience that they appreciate.

  • This place is wonderful, not only for the fact that it allows you to know a tiny portion of the fauna that inhabit our jungle ecosystem, but because they are dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of many animals victims of illegal trafficking. They have already returned to their natural habitat many temporary refugees. Work worthy of praising. If you can try to collaborate with the maintenance of the center buying some souvenirs, as well as food and health products offered there. Take care of the environments of the same, and by recommendation, try to visit the place protected with a trouser and a polo long sleeve fresh, as well as not forgetting insect repellent to avoid the bite of some bug. Try not to disturb the animals, although it is true they must have become accustomed to the presence of man, as they can see when they meet some of them, but the poor are still in rehab. Many congratulations to the boys in charge of this rehab center. Successes for them... And for visitors: My congratulations for choosing this beautiful place to clear the city environment and give yourself the opportunity to know a portion of our rich biodiversity. Top Urku Center!!! 🐸🐢

  • Nice place, the best thing is that all the animals are rescued, rehabilitated and then reintegrated in a reserve by Rangers
