This is a Wildlife Rescue Center in Costa Rica..  Most of the animals have suffered some trauma in their life..  Rehabilitation and release is the primary object. However, many of the animals can not be released back into the wild. At any one time they may have over 400, mostly endangered animals. Volunteers and donations are gladly accepted..This private foundation is not funded by any government  agency.  It is now a charitable 501C foundation in the United States.
