The Amazon Animal Orphanage
Iquitos, Peru.
Pedro Bello at the Amazon Animal Orphanage in Iquitos Peru.The Orphanage, an official "Centre of Custody" for abandoned and sometimes endangered animals, was established by Gudrun Sperrer. The Orphanage developed by "default." Gudrun initially developed Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm to illustrate the lifecycle of butterflies. Soon, locals and tourists began bringing abandoned and injured animals to the Farm, starting with Pedro Bello, the Jaguar (right). Her caring acceptance of the animals resulted in a most amazing orphanage . . . with owl monkeys, marmosets, red Uacaries, capuchins, howler monkeys, anteaters (who have beautiful fur!). Please stop by the site and please support endangered animals!
