Projects to support

At the city zoo, we work for the native fauna with emphasis on the most endangered species. We propose forms of citizenship to build more respectful relationships with wildlife based on empathy.
We dedicate efforts to the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife given to us by environmental authorities and assist hundreds of animals in crisis situations every year.
The “guaguas” project: Contributes to allowing children from low-income schools to visit the zoo and be part of active experience, play and learning programs. With your contribution of US $ 4.00 you assure the entrance to the zoo of a guagua, we will develop a complete program for each group.
Rescue Project: Each year the Zoo provides rescue options for about 300 animals. With your $10 contribution we will add resources to ensure the provision of medical supplies and specialized tests needed for each animal that arrives at the Zoo. Through rehabilitation processes, our ultimate goal is to return these animals to the wild.
