A trip from Cali to Buenaventura was necessary for 74 specimens of wildlife will return to their natural habitat, among these: 3 red-fronted parrots, 21 stilts, 27 turtles, 19 boas and 4 blue crabs. The animals were admitted to the rehabilitation center through voluntary deliveriessince they were in a dangerous situation or for confiscation due to an illegal retention by a citizen.

In this regard, Marco Antonio Suárez, director of the Regional Autonomous Corporation of Valle del Cauca (CVC) said that this required an enormous effort, since the specimens They had to recover all their abilities to survive on their own in the natural environment. Also, because the operation in which the animals were released was carried out at dawn with all the technicians and professionals.

“This is an exciting moment, but at the same time worrying, because we are seeing a lot of reproduction of this species in our lakes, in our cities and municipalities, and they must be in their habitat,” Suárez added.

The reintegration of wildlife into nature is carried out throughout the Cauca Valley, since each of the species is released according to its characteristics and places of origin, so as not to alter any ecosystem and ensure its survival.

For this reason, citizens are called upon to contact the authorities if they see an animal in a place that is not their home. “Do not attack them, do not mistreat them, do not stay with them“Since we have how to take care of them, we have all the professionals trained in an appropriate manner at the San Emigdio Care Center, we have the best care and assessment center in the country.” Finished, Suárez.
