Animal Care Fund

Our Animal Care Fund provides necessary food, shelter and dedicated staff to care for our rescued wildlife.  On average we care for several parrots, owls, raccoons, pizotes, squirrels, as well as, adult howler, squirrel and capuchin monkeys. The Refuge currently has five part-time staff who’s primary role is to care for our injured and orphaned wildlife as their principal caregivers. Their work includes cleaning habitats, food preparation, feeding wildlife and managing volunteers.

Howler Nursery Fund

Our dedicated nursery is specifically designed to care for infant orphaned howler monkeys. With an average of 25-30 infant monkeys at any given time, the Howler Nursery Fund provides specially prepared produce, infant formula, fresh leaves, medications and dietary supplements as well as caring staff to provide around the clock love and attention. Infant howlers require special attention and will stay with us in the Refuge nursery until they are around 1.5-2 years old when they will transition to outdoor enclosures to begin their release program.

Veterinary Services & Clinic Fund

Our Veterinary Services & Clinic Fund covers the veterinary treatment of our injured wildlife. This often involves treatment of severe burns, wound care, surgeries, amputations, and, unfortunately necessary euthanasia.  Our onsite clinic provides the majority of the routine medical services and has facilities for a veterinarian to perform most services needed by the injured animals.  Donating to the Veterinary Services & Clinic Fund will help us to buy necessary medical supplies including, prescription medications, burn cream, bandages, medical instruments and essential medical equipment as well as help us pay for an on-site veterinarian.

We rescue, rehabilitate and release.

Stop the Shocks Program

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.

Wildlife Crossings Program

Wildlife Crossings is a new project created by Refuge for Wildlife, Harmony Gardens, Nosara Civic Association and Costas Verdes. Together, we will be creating Wildlife Crossings between NCA parkland, green spaces and maritime zones. We will be working closely together to map out current wildlife routes, create new and safe crossings, and to encourage businesses and homeowners to leave existing natural tree bridges and plant new trees where deforestation has occurred.
