Since the origin of the Nature Sanctuary of Cascada de las Animas, we have been protecting the local flora and fauna.
In the year 2003 we joined forces with the SAG (Agricultural and Livestock Service) to form the current Animal Refuge, which main focus is native fauna. This partnership allowed the creation of a rehabilitation centre that receives native animals in order to re-release them (on the condition they meet the necessary requirements and ability to re-populate species within areas affected by illegal captivity, poaching, loss of habitat, etc.)
Apart from the Rehabilitation Centre there is an Exhibition Centre, which houses the animals that cannot be released due to their physical or psychological limitations. Those who cannot be released belong to the permanent family of the Refuge and help us educate the public.
