She graduated from the Universidad de la Plata, Argentina, she was the one who gave life to this project in 2002, starting the work from the base.
how this project started?
“I worked with Dr. Tuma at the zoo and already then there were many many animal seizures, there were many baby animals and they gave them to me. I fed the parrots with a syringe and I fed the monkeys with my hand, but there came a time when they began to grow and then the question arose: where do we put them? We needed a place for the second stage of growth. So, I presented the project in 2002, asked for a hectare and they sent me to where the old administration was, which was a tapas bar at the time. And I was sent here with a female jaguerete that was emblematic of Kuñataî, who was already an old woman, and with Coco, a blue parrot whose case was also very widespread because it was an endangered species. From there we start ”. Ogarenda cares, feeds and protects a constant average of about two hundred animals of various species. Birds like toucans, parrots, a white heron and recently a baby urutaû; monkeys, an anteater and a honey-eared bear, coatis, piglets, foxes, goats and a recently arrived baby bobcat; Baby jacarés and baby turtles are just some of the species that currently make up the Unit. The work areas that they develop are: nursery, that is, the place where very small or newborn animals of all wild species are received, which for various reasons cannot be cared for by their mothers; adaptation, when animals that cannot be integrated into their groups are cared for and cared for; reproduction, we work to have the necessary infrastructure for the reproduction of some endangered species, and education, we work both in the training of human resources and in educational programs aimed at the visiting public.
