The elimination of natural areas for the city-planning, industrial, governmental development and the development of tourist activities has forced the wild fauna to move towards new sites in search of a favorable habitat. Unfortunately for many animal, in its passage they do not find natural spaces safe to be located and finish in urban areas causing to annoyances and disadvantages that can cause to them until the death.
Since 1998 the MNP carries out a rescue and rehabilitation program of wild fauna, helping hundreds of ill, wounded, displaced or orphaned animals to return to their natural habitat.
This program depends on donations in money or any other kind of help, to feed and give special care to the animals in need that arrive at the MNP.
Simply you do not buy wild animal. It is very common to see people illegally sell who them in the streets. A very common error is to buy them for “saving them” of an evident one I mistreat. When we make this one act of “charity” with the animal we are fomenting the commerce and illegal traffic of wildlife, crime punished by the Law Nº 24 of 7 of June of 1995 and Executive Decree 43 of 7 of 2004 July.
Whenever purchases an animal or some originating derivative of the wildlife (handbag, strap, etc) you are helping the violator, because you confirm to him that he is “profitable” to hunt, to mutilate and to sell an animal because always somebody the purchase.
You know as they are the wild species more common in the houses? You will be surprised
The many of people who own some of these animal has, them from small. But some of them when growing cannot repress their instinct and they become a problem for its owners, who decide to undo of them because they inconvenience to them. When doing this we condemned to the animal a safe death, since the animal do not recognize their natural predators, do not know simply as to look for its food and soon after being released they die, attacked by dogs, run over or of sadness and hunger.
