Sheltering the wild
Sponsored by Bogota's Ministry of Environment, this Colombian shelter receives between 3,000 and 3,500 wild animals a year; some seized from poachers and others found hurt. An estimated $560,000 U.S. dollars are spent in the recovery and care of these animals. Seventy percent of rescued animals are reintroduced to their habitat and the remaining 30% are sent to zoos around the country.
