1. Rescue and recovery center for injured, mistreated or orphaned animals.
We believe that every life is valuable. Both protected and hunted animals arrive at the rescue center. No distingim entre espècies i els tractem a tots igual amb la màxima responsabilitat.
Si es posible, devolvemos a los animales sanos y fuertes a la naturaleza.We do not distinguish between species and treat them all equally with the utmost responsibility.
Rescue center financing
The rescue center has high expenses. Animals struggling to survive need medication, surgical supplies and special food.
We provide the animals with the necessary care, but the real heroes of the story of each and every animal are the members and the godparents.
The rescue center has a monthly cost of €3,400. The 45 members we have on 19/02/2023 cover € 565 per month.
Become the hero and heroine of those who have no voice of their own.
Refuge for wild animals unable to return to the wild
Sometimes returning animals to the wild would be condemning them to certain death. In this case we give them a new home and take care of them for life at the wildlife refuge.
How is the wildlife refuge financed?
The Teaming: Wildlife Friends group helps to cover the costs of feeding and medication for the animals of the refuge.
- The monthly price of food is € 1,800.
- Medications cost € 200 each month.
- As of 02/19/2023 we have 162 Teaming members
We are looking for 1,638 more people willing to give up 1 coffee a month to dedicate € 1 per month to the purchase of food and medicine for the refuge’s animals.
Are you among these people?
Expansion of the animal refuge
We are desperately looking for money, even under the rocks, to expand the facilities. We receive no help from the government to take care of the animals.
3. Environmental education
Many animals that stay in the refuge for life have altered behaviors. They are humanized. For their well-being they need daily contact with people.
They participate in educational activities oriented to the public. Visitors are amazed while we explain interesting things about nature protection, and at the same time the animals receive the attention they need to feel good.
How do we finance environmental education?
Working with the public is how we earn the most money. We cover the running costs of the Zoo of the Pyrenees foundation with:
- Visitor’s tickets
- Gift vouchers
- Sales in the charity store and in the bar
- The invoices we issue for groups and schools
We also plug the economic holes where our community at the moment does not cover 100% of the animals’ needs.
Do you think it is impossible? Come and visit us. You will experience it first hand.
4. Nature conservation projects
We participate in nature conservation projects. But it is not enough for us: We want to create whole natural spaces where people benefit from the harmonious coexistence with wildlife.
We know how to embrace the problem, but we need a strong community by our side to carry out this project.
How are nature conservation projects financed?
At the moment we also finance them from the environmental education «pot». Unfortunately, this situation is not sustainable. We are exhausting our reserves.
