Wildlife sanctuary’s mission is to help preserve wildlife in southern Costa Rica through its rescue, rehabilitation, and reintroduction to the wild; it also provides a home to animals unable to return to its natural habitat due to permanent disability or excessive domestication. The Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary receives wild animals through its partnership with government entities such as MINAET and SINAC (Costa Rica´s official government wildlife care offices).

Another goal of the sanctuary is to educate and foster the appreciation for the wildlife. Through the interaction with the educational system, the sanctuary expects to promote the development of the next generation of biologists, veterinarians, naturalists, and ecologists.

Quicksilver & Scarlet were released!
When releasing squirrels it´s important to do so in an area where there´s trees from which they can feed on

¡Quicksilver & Scarlet fueron liberadas!
Cuando se liberan ardillas hay que hacerlo en áreas donde hay árboles que puedan usar como refugio y alimento. En este caso los almendros de playa son una perfecta opción.
Las ardillas chiza (Sciurus variegatoides) varían mucho en color dependiendo de donde se encuentren. En el pacífico sur por la zona de Dominical y Uvita, tienden a ser negras, sin embargo más al norte se vuelven más marrones y al este más claras, siendo de color crema y blanco. ... See more

Captive animals are not able to perform many of the natural behaviors
they would in the wild, therefore it is critical that we provide our
resident

Los animales cautivos no son capaces de llevar a cabo ciertos
comportamientos naturales que harían en estado salvaje, por lo tanto
es de vital importancia proveer a nuestros animales residentes de
estímulo mental.
Nuestros voluntarios crearon estos bonitos Tamales de frutas,
envueltos en hojas de banano y cuerda para nuestros monos cara blanca.
Ofreciéndoles una amplia variedad de enriquecimiento como ramas,
puzzles de comida etc, se evita que se aburran y así se les
proporciona estímulo mental. ... See more
