Save the Rainforest in Quepos, Costa Rica (27.5$/day)

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and release wild rainforest animals.

Our center is extremely effective at successfully releasing healthy animals back into the wild. In the past years we have worked with an enormous number of different animals including endangered squirrel monkeys, capuchins, two and three toed sloths, a jaguarundi, kinkajous, raccoons, and many more.

The Wildlife Rescue Center’s main objective is to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured, sick and orphaned animals back to the wild.  Our center brings a high quality of care to a high quantity of individuals and species.  Every year we rescue over two hundred animals of over twenty five species.
