Who we are


GARRA was originated from a group of people who shared the same concern for wildlife and animal welfare. The Direction is composed by biologists with a background in conservation, animal traffic and animal welfare.

When we realized that in Portugal, exotic animals apprehended by the authorities had no adequate shelter, waiting sometimes many years to be rescued, we decided we had to do something to prevent these animals from suffering.

Since then we have been in constant meetings with government institutes in order to find land where to build the Animal Sanctuary .
