We hope to make a difference not just in people's everyday lives, but also by contributing and giving back - by supporting a cause that we truly believe in. Our ultimate goal is to promote and raise awareness about the importance of Costa Rican wildlife and the conservation of the rainforest.
We are more than happy to be donating part of our profits to Kids Saving The Rainforest- a non-profit organization in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica that works hard in order to save rescued wild animals.
This organization focuses on rehabilitating them (providing them with a safe environment, offering medical attention, retraining them to use their instincts) and, once they have recovered completely, releasing them back into the rainforest. Unfortunately for some of the animals, a release is not always possible due to their physical conditions or external factors. Nevertheless the Rescue Center and Sanctuary tries to guarantee these animals the best replacement for their natural habitat.
They also conduct educational programs about the ecological importance of the rainforest and its various inhabitants, as well as related research and volunteering projects.
Our donations will help animals such as monkeys, sloths, anteaters, parrots, and tamarins, among others to get back into the wild or help them to adapt to their new home (providing them food, toys or other much-needed supplies), and we couldn't be more excited about it!
KSTR has been impacted by travel bans and lock downs due to the COVID-19 spread. KSTR receives funds from the tour to the sanctuary. WE have been forced to close our doors and have no income to sustain the sanctuary for the foreseeable future.
This places an immense financial burden on us at a time when many supporters are without work. Our costs are normally $30,000 a month but our team member Yeimy is working with the community and receiving a lot of Donations in produce. Thanks so much!! We hace received discounts on food from our community however the cost is still around $10,000 a month to keep the sanctuary animals safe, until this is over.
For those of you not impacted by this interruption, would you please donate as you are able?
A donation of ANY AMOUNT is greatly appreciated and needed now!
Total expense for caring for the wildlife will approach $10,000 per month. We hope the need is very short term.
The wildlife is our first priority and we can't thank you enough for supporting KSTR!
We have over 60 animals in our care. There is always a need for vet care, vaccines, and of course, food.
Your support is priceless - we're so thankful!
