RAREC is a wildlife rescue center, first and foremost. So, whenever we learn of a wild critter in danger, we jump into action.
Some of our residents are not as "exotic" as a manatee, but they are no less important, and no less deserving of their rightful place in the Amazon.
We are grateful for the opportunity to care for a variety of animals, because we learn so much from them. Beyond the lessons in biology and conservation, they teach us lessons about being a part of the ecosystem, and a living, breathing, active participant in the Rainforest. During their stay with us, as they prepare to return to the wild, our animal residents enrich our lives and the lives of our volunteers, and they are a constant reminder of the importance of saving every single passenger in this spaceship we call Earth.
