Refuge for Wildlife 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.
