ARCAS is a non-profit Guatemalan NGO formed in 1989 by a group of Guatemalan citizens who became concerned as they saw their precious natural heritage - especially their wildlife - rapidly disappearing before their eyes. ARCAS’s main project sites are: Guatemala City, Petén, and the Hawaii area of the southern pacific coast.

The ARCAS Wildlife Rescue Center in Petén is accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries as having met the highest standard in humane animal care
