Biopark and Wild life Rehabilitation
Biopark and Wildlife Rehabilitation
Our Biopark is an Environmental Conservation center where we rehabilitate wildlife and carry out environmental education through recreational educational activities where our visitors learn about how to be proactive citizens towards the protection of our planet.
Many of the species that enter to be rehabilitated achieve a safe return home, but those that do not meet the conditions to return, remain in our biopark and serve as ambassadors for conservation.
We currently house 65 individuals of different species, some of them classified under some type of threat, such as the Andean Condor, the Military Macaw, the Andean Royal Eagle and the Paramo Owl, among others.
The Biopark has established itself as a must-visit site in the city of Merida, receiving approximately 50 thousand people a year who can interact with amazing and captivating species, from which they can learn and enjoy.
Our biopark is also a source of income for 20 families who depend on direct or indirect jobs generated by Biocontacto.
We are currently closed by government regulations in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, but in addition to this, we are facing the most serious economic and social crisis in contemporary Venezuelan history.
Keeping this Biopark running year-round to ensure proper care of the species we host and our staff requires an annual expense of $ 10,000.
With your help we will be able to continue operating and provide assistance to animal species of invaluable biological value.
