Shelter Stories

Don Tucu (Bubo virginianus magellanicus)

Tucuqueres or Magellanic horned owls are Chile’s biggest owls and sadly they are being killed. Even today there are beliefs that link them to bad luck and death, and out of fear, owls like Mr. Tucu are being shot. He survived to tell us his story so we could all learn to recognize and protect such beautiful nocturnal predators.

Ayün, Lolo and Newen (Puma concolor Puma)

The Pumas that accompany us came from different corners of the southern part of Chile, in the years 2008, 2009 and 2011. All were found small and orphaned, however eager to live and teach us how perceptive, sensitive and majestic Chile’s number one predator can become.

Puruma (Leopardus Guigna)

Small but dangerous, the Hüiña is the smallest wild cat in Chile and America. Puruma arrived at the shelter in the year 2009, at only 10 days old, approximately. She was found roaming on a highway near Puerto Varas. From the moment she arrived she became the favorite of many and sparks our days with her tenderness and energy.

Austral parakeet (Enicognathus ferrugineus) and Slender billed parakeet (Enicognathus leptorhynchus)

Austral and Slender billed parakeets have come to us after passing through the black market of pets, where they got their wings clipped or have been domesticated to the point they have lost their natural behaviour. For these and other reasons, our parakeet friends, important beings for the natural reforestation of the native forest, are with us in the Wild Animal Shelter.
