Akumal Natura Rescue

Meet our commitment with nature, a wildlife preservation program with more then 80 animals were we help to rehabilitate, reproduce and reinsert local animals in collaboration with the local authorities

Akumal Natura’s mission

Our Animal Rescue Center collaborates with the local authorities to provide shelter for displaced native animals. Most animals were confiscated from illegal trade, abandoned by their previous owners once deemed unfit as pets. They are donated to us to provide them food, shelter, and healthcare with the help of our biologist’s collaborators.

Animals brought to our unit will be able to live in their natural environment, some in large enclosures and others in semi-captivity, depending on their behavior and ability to live in peace with the other animals in the center.

We identify the eligible animals and transfer them to a rehabilitation and reintroduction site, with the ultimate goal of being released into the wild.

Help our volunteers! Enjoy getting your hands dirty and help the animals. There is always plenty to do at our rescue. Sign Up today and collaborate in our rescue mission.

Cenote Tumben-Ha / Flora and Fauna

Want to visit the wildlife rescue center? We organize half-day visits to meet the animals and our ecological plan to collaborate with wildlife protection and contribute to our mission.

The experience lasts an approximate time of 4 hours and departs from Akumal Natura Glamping. We house more than 80 wild animals of 23 different species. During the tour, you can have a close encounter with some of them under the careful supervision of our guides, learn about pollination and the harmless stingless Melipona bee and taste its powerful and nutrient-rich honey.

Every animal brought to our Environmental Unit is placed in a rehabilitation, reproduction, and reinsertion program. The objective is to provide freedom to the wildlife with an excellent health condition back into their natural habitat.

We visit the Cenote Tumben-ha, a true oasis in the middle of the Mayan jungle during the tour. Cenotes were a symbol of life for Mayans; they are also home to turtles and iguanas, frogs, and butterflies.

At the end of the tour, immerse yourself in the clear water cenote, believed to have healing properties.

Encuentro entre dos bebés tejones con uno de otra familia. Ahora entrarán en una fase de rehabilitación, a base de buena alimentación y cuidados. En unos meses los liberaremos a los tres, cerca de nuestras instalaciones y  cuándo estemos seguros de qué ya pueden sobrevivir y valerse por sí mismos. 
Gran satisfacción el ver qué su primer contacto no habido ninguna agresión, muy al contrario curiosidad y aceptación.

Encounter between two baby badgers with one from another family.  Now they will enter a rehabilitation phase, based on good nutrition and care.  In a few months we will release all three of them, close to our facilities and when we are sure that they can survive and fend for themselves.
 Great satisfaction to see that their first contact had not been any aggression, quite the contrary, curiosity and acceptance.

Dou you know that by staying at Akumal Natura Glamping you are supporting the welfare of this area?
Let me explain...
I introduce myself
 I am Antonio Alonso and I write from Akumal Natura Rescue in the jungle of the Mexican Mayan Riviera. We host 80 wildlife animals with which we pursue objectives of rehabilitation, reproduction and reintegration
 I like to describe myself as a chronicler of nature and an avid observer of it. 
For those of you who do not know me, I am already, with all its letters, a “citizen of the planet” 

 I am not a biologist nor am I a veterinarian, I am only guided by vocation and commitment. 
Even so, we have the advice of a biologist technical manager and a veterinarian who visits us monthly to establish preventive medicine and various care plans.

 I am interested and attracted to questions about nature and I am an avid reader and modest researcher who frequently consults various sources to satisfy my curiosity when I am interested in a topic.
 Even so, this is not about me, it is just the vision of an “adventurologist”, who is getting older and more aware of the environment in which we live and with the desire to spread themes, knowledge, and experiences based on nature. in general and with the hope that they can contribute or transmit something.
 The company of the animals and plants of the jungle taught me to think that we are part of this place, and not mere spectators and that, with the proper motivation and knowledge we can help in the preservation

We would love to share a day with you and live an experience at our rescue center by the jungle.

Hoy es un día especial. 
Hoy día 17 de Julio hace 17 años, inició el proyecto Akumal Natura Rescue. 
En ese día, o mejor dicho en la noche del 17 al 18 de julio de 2005 entró el devastador huracán Emily que arrasó con toda en esta zona. 
Recuerdo que para poder acceder al terreno en la jungla tuvimos que entrar con una brigada de 7 personas con machetes y motosierras a cortar y apartar las decenas de árboles que cayeron en los caminos. 
Salir de casa en la madrugada tras la noche de ruidos y miedos fue una escena dantesca con un paisaje que había cambiado en unas horas de color. Lo que antes era verde clorofilico por las pasadas lluvias, ahora no quedaba ni una hoja en los árboles y era todo de un color predominantemente marrón… 
Pues bien, dos días después y desde la aldea de Uxuxubí nos trajeron una cría de mono araña que seguramente había caído de los protectores brazos de su madre en la dureza de la tormenta; nos preguntaron si queríamos ocuparnos de la cria ante lo que no pudimos negarnos… su nombre es Pancha y todavía, aunque algo mayor ya, sigue con nosotros. 
El resto es historia, ahora en Akumal Natura Rescue  tenemos más de 80 animales salvajes de 20 especies diferentes y con los que seguimos planes de Rehabilitación, reproducción y reintegración. somos una empresa si ánimo de lucro y el rescate de fauna silvestre es ahora nuestra pasión. puedes visitarnos si gustas. 
Nos gustara conocerte y compartir experiencias contigo. 🐒💚
