Antigua Exotic was born in 2006 as a product of Dr. Roger Mazariegos’ concern for the ecological problems that Guatemala was facing at that time. Entity dedicated to environmental education and conservation, we also serve as a wildlife rescue center endorsed an supported by CONAP.
Our passion for nature motivated us to want to educate the Guatemalan population about the ecological importance of conserving our rich biodiversity, providing educational talks to schools, colleges and companies, as well as training entities dedicated to social service such as firefighters, police and hospitals to name a few.
One of the main reasons for our creation was also the lack of information and fear of reptiles, amphibians and arthropods, feared animals full of myths around them since time imemorial, misinformation that many times is the cause of the death of thousands of wild animals each year, putting even several species in danger of extinction.
