Santuario Animal Cochahuasi - Other Activity Cusco - Peru

Located halfway along the highway between Cusco and Pisac is the private, family-owned Cochahuasi animal sanctuary. The organisation, which was founded in 2007, is run by volunteers and funded entirely by donations. The sanctuary receives animals that have been abused or illicitly trafficked. They focus particularly on the critically endangered Andean Condor, and run a reproduction program. They also aim to raise awareness of the importance of wildlife conservation. As well as the Condor, you will find deer, macaws, wildcats, eagles and cougars. Come for a visit, or if you have a bit more time, stay to volunteer. Daily 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
