AAP Animal Advocacy and Protection (The Netherlands)
Animanatura Wild Sanctuary (Italy)
The project came from the need to give animals a permanent house where they can stay until the end of their lives, because they cannot be reintroduced in nature again. Since 1996, the sanctuary has hosted animals victim of illegal trade, mistreated, abused or part of special protection plans.
Animanatura’s aim is to ensure the necessary health care system to animals entered in our country illegally or abused, in order to reinsert them in an environment more similar to the natural one.
In over 20 years of activity, the centre had taken care of more than 18.000 native animals and more than 3.000 wild and exotic animals.
