The Rainsong Sanctuary and Wildlife
Rescue Center are located in
Cabuya, on the edge of Costa Rica's oldest National Park, "Reserva
Natural Absoluta Cabo Blanco."
Our community refuge stretches from Playa Coyote to Paquera, including
(to date) almost 3000 hectares (7500 acres) of protected habitat, a
figure already larger than the nearby Cabo Blanco Reserve, and this
figure is growing rapidly as additional property owners sign up.
Our basic goals
Create a "Community" Wildlife Refuge by gathering signatures of
conservation-minded individual landowners who are committed to stopping
hunting and providing safe habitat for animals. In the first few weeks
we have already signed up over 7500 acres to the Penjamo
Community Wildlife Refuge.
Provide information and assistance in reforesting the southern tip of
the Nicoya Peninsula. We are already providing half-price seedlings of endangered
hardwoods and native fruit trees favored by wildlife.
Operate a badly needed regional wildlife hospital
for the rescue of injured or abandoned animals and birds.
Re-introduce endangered species to
the areas where they've become extinct in the past few decades. These
include the endangered Three-toed Sloth, Baird's Tapir, Quetzal, Spider
Monkeys, Kinkajous, Tepezquintles (pacas), Tamandua Anteaters, Green
Iguanas, Crested Guan, Chachalacs, native pigeons and quail, Scarlet
