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 provide a safe haven to animals that need refuge because of loss of habitat, accidents, victims of pet trade or hunting. Many of those animals can be nursed back to a healthy condition, and can be released into their natural habitat. Some animals have to stay with us, and for those we try 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 growing.

We have a breeding program for turtles and we do reintroduce them to their natural habitat.

We promote conservation by activities of environmental education for the local schools. THINK GLOBALLY, START LOCALLY.

There is a lot to see and it all makes for a fun and educational time.
