The wide variety of creatures living in these zoos goes from birds and small mammals like monkeys and tapirs to large felines including jaguars and a lion to crocodiles and other reptiles.

Deputy Environment Minister Ana Lorena Guevara said she is working with animal-rescue organizations to relocate the specimens in these zoos and return to the wild those that are suitable.

If a home cannot be found for all the animals, the government will take charge of them through the National System of Conservation Areas.
