I am in charge of the El Cora Crocodile Sanctuary and together with my work team we carry out important environmental conservation work.
About El Cora Crocodile Sanctuary
El Cora Crocodile Sanctuary is an organization dedicated to conservation through various tools, ecotourism, environmental education, wildlife rescue and support for research projects.
The project is 100% supported by the visits since we offer a guided tour of our facilities in which we describe the crocodiles, their current conservation status, the importance of mangroves, and they can experience meeting them up close, touching them and creating a bond with them through a unique and safe interaction. Thanks to the support of visitors, who have come to learn about our project, experience, and discover the wonders that wildlife holds for us, the El Cora Crocodile Sanctuary has remained with conservation work, wildlife rescue, as well as supporting research programs and environmental education events. All the fauna that we have inside the Sanctuary was rescued and due to different situations could not be reintroduced to their habitats, but we try to reintroduce most of the rescued fauna (e.g., this year we have released about 12 new species of crocodiles). this year we have released about 12 rescued crocodiles, 20 opossums, 7 iguanas, 2 gulls, woodpeckers, etc.)
Help us survive during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because we do not receive any financial support from government agencies, any contribution from visitors is essential for the development of our project, but, because COVID-19 visits have been considerably reduced, but our commitment to the welfare of our animals remains in place.
Really the only image that can describe this is that in those seats there should be people waiting for a tour, but this is the third week without receiving any visitors due to the presence of COVID-19.
Visitors are essential in our project because their contribution is the only way we obtain funds to keep the activities afloat; we do not receive any governmental support.
Approximately $2,500 dollars is needed to be able to subsist this month, between food for the animals, medicine, gasoline, and maintenance; without counting salaries, since due to the situation our collaborators and I are doing this work from the heart.
For this reason we need your help and we will be very grateful for any donation to our cause.
