The TREE OF LIFE, a many branched tree, illustrates the idea that all life is interconnected.
El ARBOL DE VIDA, un arbol de muchas ramas, significa que toda vida esta interconnectada.
With tremendous pain in our hearts we have come to the informed decision not to continue our activities as a wildlife rescue center. We are grateful that we were able to offer a safe haven to many different animals and were able to release many of them back to their natural habitats.
We would like to thank all visitors, volunteers and tour companies for their visits and support. We want to give an enormous thanks to all the professionals for their specialized help. For the last 15 years they have taken care of many animals in some rough climate conditions.
We send thanks to all the animal life in the world. They have many things to teach us as people. We are glad they are still on this Earth and we hope it will always be so. Don't forget to plant a tree; we will continue to do so and create wildlife corridors and habitats.
Tree of Life, Todd & Patricia, Aug 15, 2020
We provided a safe haven to animals that need refuge because of loss of habitat,
accidents, victims of pet trade or hunting. Many of those animals were nursed
back to a healthy condition, and released into their natural habitat.
Some animals had to stay with us, and for those we tried to provide the most natural habitat possible.
The gardens are approx. 10 acres of many types of plant groups. There are
palms, heleconias, bromeliads, calatheas, aroids etc.
There are a lot of different palm species and a special Talamanca area
with indigenous plants. There are also spices like vanilla, black pepper,
cinnamon. In addition we have papaya, banana, cacao and pineapple
We had a breeding program for turtles and we did reintroduce them to their natural habitat.
We promoted conservation by activities of environmental education for the local
schools. THINK GLOBALLY, START LOCALLY.
There was a lot to see and it all made for a fun and educational time.
