The wildlife refuge at La Paz waterfall garden
The animal exhibits are a great way to see wildlife up close that would normally be very hard to see in real life. As said before, ‘none of the animals that you will see in this Wildlife Refuge have been taken from their natural habitat’ as stated on the website of waterfallgardens.com. All of the animals at La Paz Waterfall Gardens have either been confiscated as illegal pets, or they were injured and unable to return to the wild.
It is a self guided tour along the animal exhibits, but there is plenty of staff around that can tell you everything about the animals. Besides that, there are also lots of information boards around.
The Wildlife refuge is split into different sections per type of wildlife. There are sections for exotic birds, a butterfly observatory, hummingbird garden, monkeys, sloths, snakes, frogs and jungle cats, including puma’s and jaguars!
