Costa Rica is known for its great diversity of plants and animals, however, human development and the accompanying destruction of natural habitat, not to mention illegal hunting, have led to a precipitous decline in wildlife populations, causing many species to be in danger of extinction. We believe by doing our part in helping injured wild animals and educating the public on the struggle of these animals, we will be helping to restore the balance between man and nature. At our wild animal rescue center, you can help us prepare the diet for the animals, and in the afternoon, you can help clean the enclosures, or something else that might be required like painting, making toys for the animals, or help build a new enclosure. The activity is perfect for kids, teenagers and adults (all ages)!
