Feb 3, 2017 - Yurak Allpa Zoo and Falcon Training Center

The Yurak Allpa Zoo and Refuge is located in Tarqui, about 30 minutes from Cuenca. It is privately owned and shelters many exotic animals rescued from owners who could no longer take care of them. Besides the critters shown in my photos, there are blue-footed boobies, penguins, and an ostrich that gives massages. The tour bus continued down the road to a falcon training center where the visitors could experience falcons close up.
