Cu Chi wildlife rescue station
Founded in 2006, the Wildlife rescue station is located between Ben Duoc and Ben Dinh. It is the largest home of 3,600 species of rare animals. Currently, the station is feeding over 200 animals across more than 50 different species. Let’s expose yourself in the wildlife when listening your guide tell about the rare animals.
“We had a private tour of the centre and it was the most fabulous experience. The staff were so friendly and all the animals looked happy and well looked after. It was very sad to hear/see how many of the animals had lost limbs via poachers traps and could never be re-released into the wild but the centre does release thousands of animals back into the wild once they are rehabilitated which is great to hear. Make sure you leave a donation so the centre can keep up their work as they receive no funding from government” said by a visitor on Trip Advisor
