Alion Institute’s CEO, animal activist, and the president of Section for Animal Rights and Protection at Political Party Youth – Green Europe, Tyasha Alion held a meeting and
participated in activities related to an animal rights and issues in ARCAS Guatemala Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Association.
In past 20 years, the ARCAS Association has had rescued a thousands of animals captured by people, then rehabilitated and returned to the nature.
To get an inside look at the organization’s work, problems and other issues we also participated in a daily work by one of their volunteers.
We saw how the ARCAS team rehabilitating wildlife by following a protocol in order to protect both the humans and the animals throughout the process. The ARCAS team follows a five-step plan with a goal to cure, rehabilitate and release as many animals as possible back to the freedom.
ARCAS also works to educate the community on the impact of the illegal pet trade. They’re raise awareness among Guatemalans and visiting tourists about the need to conserve natural resources through a programs of education and information dissemination, endangered wildlife reproduction, rescue, rehabilitation, and reintroduction into their natural habitat.
Many animals, once they are removed from their natural home, are “dead” and can never return to fulfil their rightful place in the ecosystem.
