About the provider of the course

The course was developed by the Spanish and French biologists of the biopark in the Amazon rainforest near the small town of Puyo, which has been committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of wild animals from illegal trade and improper husbandry since 2006.
The project works with the Ecuadorian Environmental Protection Agency and the Ministry of the Environment in the fight against illegal animal trade and ownership, cruelty to animals and illegal hunting of wild animals.
On more than 100 hectares, wild animals such as Titi and Capuchin monkeys, peccaries, coati and wrap bears, tayras, margays/tree ocelots, turtles, parrots and macaws that are intended for release are temporarily held and provided rehabilitation programs including veterinary care and animal psychology.
The tutor of the course, Raul Cuatrecasas Abad, holds a BA degree in Biology from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and has completed various additional diploma courses specializing in wildlife rehabilitation. He is now a lecturer of operant conditioning at the UPMA (Universidad de protección de medio ambiente) in Quito as well as teaching handling of wild animals at the Military and Fire Brigade Academy in Pastaza in Ecuador. Since 2010 he has been active in wildlife rehabilitation in the rainforest of Ecuador.
