WE BELIEVE IN A WORLD IN WHICH HUMANS LOVE

AND PROTECT NATURE. 

We are a non-profit foundation dedicated to sustainable and interactive environmental education for children and their communities. We are also devoted to the care of confiscated wildlife from illegal trading.

We have preserved a unique city-jungle to provide wildlife a home and visitors the fantastic experience to discover biodiversity.

Because nature needs protection and future guardians.

WHERE

Our home is a unique, preserved hectare of a tropical dry forest right in the centre of Santiago de Cali, Colombia’s third largest city. An experience of biodiversity.

WHY

Important ecosystems are endangered. Only one in ten animals survives illegal wildlife trading. Caring and engaged children will change the future.

WHAT

We provide environmental education for children and communities. We give confiscated wildlife a home and medical care. We protect a precious ecosystem.

WANT TO MAKE A CHANGE?

Wildlife is suffering because of a lack of awareness and transparency.
Together we can make an impact!

“The work of El Refugio Foundation has a very high value in Cali. Here in the middle of the city, people are given the gift to experience the original nature of their country. From this awareness, the responsibility towards their environment is raised through knowledge that is easier conveyed when close in form.”

Gerhard Thyben, Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany Cali, Colombia
