Esperanza Verde

Vets, Vet Nurses, Vet Students, Non-Vets

WVS are delighted to be supporting Esperanza Verde, a wildlife rescue centre and conservation project based in Peru within the Amazon jungle. Many animal species fall victim to illegal hunting, either for meat or to be sold into the pet trade. Esperanza Verde rescue and rehabilitate animals that have been confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade. Where possible they release animals back into the wild, however sadly this is not possible in all cases. As a result they also provide permanent homes to animals deemed unfit for release. They protect a large area of rainforest and actively look to reforest areas previously lost to farming or logging.
