Dinner with a Cause to Support “El Cora” Crocodile Sanctuary Announced
The Fundación Crecento is organizing a dinner with cause to support “El Cora” Crocodile Sanctuary. This dinner will take place this Saturday, September 10th, 2022 at 7:00pm at Dolcetto Bar and Lounge by La Dolce Vita (Av. Las Palmas 3, Nuevo Vallarta).
Part of the proceeds will be used for a project to set up two transition areas (one for opossums and the other one for crocodiles) at Riviera Nayarit’s “El Cora” Crocodile Sanctuary, an Environmental Management Unit certified by PROFEPA (Federal Attorney of Environmental Protection), which welcomes wild species that have been mistreated or abandoned in order to rehabilitate them and later release them into their natural habitat.
“Currently, these animals are in small cages that don’t allow them to have natural movements, so this can cause them other physical ailments. Building these transitional houses will increase their probability of survival”, explains Yuridia Curiel, ecological coordinator of Fundación Crecento.
Price per person for this three-course dinner (which includes three alcoholic drinks or non-alcoholic drinks) is 900 pesos. In addition, there will be a silent auction and a trova session as a musical entertainment.
Tickets can be purchased through direct message on Fundación Crecento’s Instagram.
