Cochawasi

This animal shelter, known as an ‘animal sanctuary,’ is a private refuge where professional staff and volunteers care for all Andean animals that were injured by humans or rescued by environmental police.

In this sanctuary, you can observe many majestic animals, such as:

El cóndor andino

The Andean condor. A type of bird of prey. These enormous birds can measure 1.60 meters in height and have a wingspan of 5 meters. Furthermore, these birds have only one mate for their entire life (they are monogamous). Additionally, they can live in various altitudes, from the coast to the Andes.

The Andean bear. There are six types of bears worldwide, and within the entire American continent, only here in Peru can you find the famous spectacled bear. This Andean bear typically inhabits the Peruvian jungle, including the areas around Machu Picchu.
