    What to Expect
    Visit: Santuario Animal de Cochahuasi, Km. 22 Via Cusco Pisaq, Cusco 0800 Peru

    In order to obtain the economic resources for this primordial objective and to avoid the extinction of our Andean condor, it is necessary and urgent to work together with institutions interested in the preservation of bio diversity, whether national or foreign, the population in general as well as the operators of tourism identified with the environment and wildlife developing a responsible and sustainable ecotourism.

    Short-Term Objectives of the Sanctuary: Education is considered as the most important factor to contribute to the conservation of local species and biodiversity. It is also the reason that justifies the existence of a Wildlife Sanctuary or Wildlife Rescue Center, that is why our short-term objectives are expand education to encourage and strengthen respect for nature.

    We will promote a conservationist ethic and values of appreciation for the national biodiversity of the region's animals for education, research and conservation of them. This cultural diffusion of the Andean flora and fauna of Peru, which is a proper function of the Sanctuaries or Rescue Centers, should promote the culture of conservation of the environment and ensure the reproduction of specimens of wild fauna.

    We carry out a Volunteering Program with the participation of national and foreign students, who perform enrichment and assistance work in all the areas that the Center requires. In relation to the number of days they remain, they are given a work plan of at least 3 days or more.

    Medium-Term Objectives of the Sanctuary: We want to create in the visiting public a positive experience so that you understand the importance of conservation in relation to your own survival.

    Schedule and project research topics for the benefit of the animals.

    Implement a site Museum that allows to increase the knowledge of visitors through interactive rooms.

    Long-Term Objectives of the Sanctuary. To be able to add to the exhibition a botanical garden that exhibits species of flora native to the area and native to the jungle area, thus being able to provide a more familiar habitat for wildlife species.
