Marine Wildlife in Argentina is in need of Help
Rescate Verdemar is a team working in Argentina to protect and preserve marine wildlife.
Each day, phone calls come in about animals needing help including, sea lions, penguins, dolphins, sea birds, and even land wildlife.
Rescate started in the 1980s from Alejandro Herrera (the founder) realizing that there is marine wildlife dying and needing help on the beaches of his hometown, but the closest rescue was hundreds of miles away. Alejandro built a team of volunteers including DR Mauricio Perazzo ; a local Argentinian Wildlife Vet previously practicing in Santa Barbara CA. With no resources or funds, they began helping in any way they could.
This team started working towards educating children in the schools about wildlife in the area, cleaning up the beaches, and providing the rehabilitation/release of wildlife.
All of this has been done out of our love for animals and knowing that they wouldn't survive without our help, but we can't keep doing this alone. Everything that has been done so far has been paid for out of pocket by the Rescate Verdemar team, and anyone in the area willing to donate services.
Over the past few years, the number of animals being brought in has increased dramatically, exhausting our resources and finances. Each day, multiple new animals are brought in, and team members find a way to make it work. Animals are kept in donated cages and often at team members houses.
We are currently working towards expanding Rescate Verdemar and need help being able to afford costs for:
-Renting a building to keep all the animals in
(antibiotics, pain medicines, etc.)
(food, bedding, heat lamps, etc.)
(Need cages large enough to hold sea lions)
(Need large rehabilitation cages for owls and hawks)
(We need a lot of vet equipment that we can't afford, so we've been having to improvise with the equipment we do have)
-Truck or car that can fit cages and animals
(We've been having to borrow cars)
Anything that you are able to donate helps another animal. Even $1 can get food for the animals.
