The release of birds, including Peruvian boobies, Peruvian seagulls, pelicans and guanays, has been possible thanks to hard work to recover these animals, work that is carried out by professionals, including veterinarians, zootechnicians and volunteers called by Aiuka , who have worked in coordination with the staff of Parque de Las Leyendas and Serfor.

Currently, the institutions involved continue to focus on the recovery of the remaining birds, with the aim of returning them to their natural habitat in the coming weeks. These tasks have been carried out in the specially conditioned Rescue Center in the Parque de las Leyendas.
