A bigger project than you imagine.
Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals.
A space created with the purpose of housing some species of wildlife or fauna in the process of domestication, regardless of their origin, that is, without making a distinction in native or introduced species.
Generally, they are specimens that have been mainly affected by human actions or natural phenomena that negatively influence the environment, preventing in most cases the reintroduction to their natural environment and consequently, remaining for life under human care.
Currently, more than 200 specimens from 55 different species have been rescued.
As part of the activities carried out under the margin of environmental education, educational tours are given by their trained guides.
The guides are responsible for transmitting the history of the specimens we house, explaining the place of origin, the reason why they are in the place, which they do to keep them in good condition, and the biology of the species.
Visitors have the opportunity to be face to face with the specimens in the educational bonding program, they are allowed to know and link more naturally without the need for a forced approach. In this way, they can promote awareness of both native and exotic wildlife care and prevent the acquisition of such species as pets.
The educational linkage program that is carried out in the Sanctuary is approved by the corresponding agencies.
