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

Did you know? Of the seven species of sea turtles, almost all are classified as endangered, and that is mainly due to human activities. That’s why at ARCAS we believe it is important to educate people about the conservation and protection of wildlife; and we do it through CEBIO
