Padre Cocha, Peru, September 14, 2013 - A rescued toucan at the Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm just north of Iquitos on the Nanay River. The Farm also serves as an animal conservatorium. Due to Peruvian law, the Farm is required to take in animals dropped at its doors. Because wild animals are sold often as pets at nearby markets in Iquitos, they are almost as often abandoned of left on the doorsteps here.
