Breeding: Tapirs (Tapirus bairdii), spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi), green macaws (Ara ambigua), scarlet macaws (Ara macao), and a few different types of felines are just some of the animals that are bred here.

Liberation: This program benefits the animals born in the Wildlife Rescue Center La Marina that show innate characteristics necessary for surviving in a natural environment.

Reintroduction: The Reintroduction Program applies to all of the animals that enter the Wildlife Rescue Center because of repossession, habitat destruction, hunting, or from being injured in public and private areas.

Rescue: The rescue program at Wildlife Rescue Center has saved many lives of wild animals that for different reasons have either been a threat to people, or people and their activities have been a threat to them.

Conservation: This program concentrates on the daily maintenance of animals that have no hope of returning to their natural habitat.
