I established Raquel's Ark because of a growing need to provide a safe heaven for the wild animals of Panama. Often animals are killed or injured due to fear or lack of understanding of how we benefit from them. Raquel's Ark is used to place animals in the safe and secure environment that Alouatta Sanctuary provides them. The animals are provided the medical care that the desperately needed sort of like triage in an emergency room of a hospital. When the animals are safe, and their health stable to move.
Here at Raquel's Ark we save one life at a time. Our mission is to rehabilitate and release back into the wild. There are cases where this is not possible. In those cases we provide a loving environment that allows them to grow. I work closely with ANAM.
Our supporters, through their generous donations, allow us to provide medical attention and advanced diet. We have both an onsite medical staff and a hyperbaric chamber used for healing.
