Our Animal Care Fund provides necessary food, shelter, medical expenses and dedicated staff to care for our rescued wildlife. On average we care for a large variety of wildlife including parrots, owls, raccoons, pizotes, squirrels, anteaters, opossums, iguanas, and adult howler monkeys living with us long-term. We also have several enclosures dedicated to orphaned infants howler monkeys who lost their mothers due to electrocution, car accidents and dog attacks.
Stop the Shocks
Electrocution is the #1 killer of howler monkeys in Costa Rica. Every year Refuge for Wildlife rescues hundreds of monkeys and other wildlife that have been electrocuted due to uninsulated power lines and transformers. In addition to rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing these animals we are also dedicated to preventing injures and deaths caused by electrocution. Our Stop the Shocks committee focuses it’s efforts on insulating power lines and transformers while continuing to educate the community about wildlife safety.
Adopt a Howler Troop
Virtually adopt a troop of young monkeys and play a vital role in their progress. Your donation will help us provide food, shelter and the essential care that is required to rehabilitate helpless orphans into independent and confident monkeys ready to return to the forest. You will receive a personalized certificate of adoption, a photograph, factsheet filled with interesting information about the monkeys and regular email updates on how the troop is progressing. You can also add a cuddly howler monkey toy to your adoption package to give as a gift! Find out more on the website of our partner organization, International Animal Rescue and Adopt a Howler Troop.
