In Los Llanos Orientales, South America’s western plains, various forms of exotic fauna populate the landscape. 

Parts of the region had to be wrestled away from the hands of cartels and poachers to be transformed into a magnificent bio-park. Many of the animals at the facility are on the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITIES) list to be protected from exploitation in international trade. Green anacondas, piranhas, giant armadillos and anteaters, and critically endangered Orinoco crocodiles are just a few of the animals that call the park home.   

Know Before You Go

Open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on the weekends and holidays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. As a non-profit, admission costs are reinvested into the rehabilitation center.
