Overview
More
We are a wildlife rescue center and sea turtle program. We work through volunteering.In general, we expect volunteers to become a willing part of the Rescue Center team and to take an integral part in the day-to-day operations of the Center. We also expect that, barring physical limitations, all volunteers take an equal part in performing all tasks at the Center regardless of background, training or educational level. At times there is a lot of work, especially during the cruise line tour season since many of the animals are confiscated during this time. Animals in Costa Rica are still used as tourist attractions.In addition, volunteers are encouraged to develop their own individual projects

I've always had a particular fondness for sloths...perhaps they're my spirit animal, maybe it's their irresistible, serene smiles, or maybe it's hard to believe that anything can move so slowly. Whatever the reason,I knew we had to see these remarkable animals up close. Our visit...More

You can't hold the sloths in the wildlife sanctuary, but you can pet one.
