    Amazon Rescue Center (CREA) is a conservation project that works in partnership with The Dallas World Aquarium Zoo and the Research Institute of the Peruvian Amazon. Located 30 minutes from Iquitos downtown by tuk tuk or 1 hour by bus, CREA offers you the possibility to experience the real conservation in the Peruvian Amazon. The species in the rescue center were rescued from different places where kept illegally in captivity. After the rehabilitation, they are released to their natural habitat. So far CREA has released 23 manatees, 2 pink dolphins, anteaters, sloths, turtles and other animals. One of our guides will explain you the rehabilitation process in the different areas we have such as: Reptiles (yellow spotted river turtle, tortoise), monkeys, birds and manatees. You will also visit our interpretation center "The flooded forest" with real size fiber glass statues of the main aquatic species of the amazon. The tour lasts an hour, you will walk through our path in the forest where you can learn more about the Amazonian.

They are doing amazing work at this rescue. We enjoyed not only learning about the animals themselves but hearing about the work and education they are doing to continue their protection. As they said - it starts with educating the younger generations and getting them involved.

This is one of the few reputable animal rescues in the area, and they're doing great work. They educate - travelers and locals - about the manatees and the crucial part they play in the ecosystem. They're working to eliminate manatee hunting and other destructive practices.
