The Amazon Animal Orphanage link takes you to the Orphanage with news and updates on how the animals are faring. The Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm link takes you to the Butterfly Farm. Both the Orphanage and the Butterfly farm are in the same location in Peru. Information for both are included throughout the site.
The Amazon Animal Orphanage is designated by the Peruvian Government as a "Centre of Custody" for resscued wild animals. It is home to many magnificent species under the protection of the Orphanage.
Please take time to visit and be enchanted by these splendid and sometimes endangered animals. Meet Pedro, Luigi, Angie, Rosa . . .
This small non-profit is in ongoing need of financial support to feed abandoned and orphaned wild animals.
Gudrun Sperrer's dream was to work with animals, including breeding one of the world's most beautiful creatures -- butterflies. She started Pilpintuwasi, where you will see the complete lifecycle and the impressive development of butterflies.
With a host of volunteers who also love nature, they are conscious of the threats to flora and fauna, and hope that all of their efforts will enable visitors to increase interest in and love of our natural world and help with conservation efforts.
