Zoo Peru focuses our conservation efforts and assistance for people, flora and fauna in the Amazon rainforest in Peru, South America. Antony Taggart, Roland Noronha Melendez and David Polinsky established Zoo Peru Inc. over 25 years ago, primarily to assist the Quistococha Zoo which struggled for finances to satisfactorily house a large range of indigenous species of fauna.

Since then, Zoo Peru Inc. has become involved in other projects to conserve habitat, provide sustainable employment and assist with rescue and relocation of animals from the illegal pet trade.
