ANIMAL REHABILITATION WORK IN POSADAS, ARGENTINA


El Puma Ecological Park is an animal breeding and rehabilitation centre near Posadas that aims to promote the welfare of wild animals that are native to Argentina.

Their objectives are to help sick or injured animals that have been captured by forest rangers by nursing them back to health and to raise the numbers of native species by breeding them while in captivity. The animals are rehabilitated at the centre and then once ready released back to their natural habitat, if possible. El Puma works with the Ministry of Ecology of that province and depends on them for funding.

El Puma is located in the small town of Candelaria which is approximately 12 miles from the city of Posadas. Candelaria, located on the Rio Parana, is known for its mystical Jesuit ruins, eucalyptus and pine plantations, and is the location of a lovely park that has a waterfall, canyon and campsites.

Due to the lack of financial resources, the expertise and funding provided by private groups and international conservation agencies is essential to supplement what the Ministry of Ecology provides. This center needs assistance in taking care of the animals, and volunteers will make up a substantial proportion of the labor force. Age Range: 18-80
