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.

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.
