Our trained and dedicated staff works around the clock to ensure the animals receive the best care possible. The Society not only ensures the welfare of the animals in its collection but is heavily involved in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of distressed local wild animals. The Zoo also cares for species seized by the Wildlife Section, Forestry Division from the illegal pet trade. Our competent and experienced staff is also involved in safeguarding the nesting marine turtles including the leatherback sea turtles on Manzanilla beach and the monitoring and protection of the endangered West Indian manatee in the wild.
