Our visit to Pilpintuwasi was incredible. We were welcomes by one of the rarest monkeys in the amazon, all of which live freely in the sanctuary. They are used to humans but still you can see that they are wild and have their instincts. We were guided around and taught all about the butterflies and saw every stage of their lifecycle, very informative and a great learning experience. The next part of the tour was to the animals which the owner has rescued from various cruel fates. The guide told us all about each species and their problems in the amazon, hence we were able to learn about the conservation of each species. The animals were beautiful and there are many to see including many monkey species, 2 cat species, various birds, aquatic life and sloths. This place is doing everything that the others arent, it actually rescues the animals unlike monay other so called sanctuaries in iquitos, it does not display them for humans, rather they live how they need and you get to see them in as natural environment as possible, unlike others who will hang a sloth around your neck in the day (they are noctornal)! A great sanctuary and informative experience about the conservation of the amazon! And to Bozena- yes it is small but what would you like more animals to be in trouble so they can be exhibited to you, it is not a zoo!
