The Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary In Costa Rica

We Nurture Distressed Animals Back To Health & Reintroduce Them Back To The Wild

About Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary

Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary is a rescue and rehabilitation center with on-site veterinary clinic for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. We release as many animals as we possibly can but provide lifetime care to those that cannot return to the wild. Some of these animals are confiscated from the illegal pet-trade and over-domesticated, or have long-tern physical or neurological injuries which prevent their release.

The center is situated on a mountain in the heart of the jungle and is within walking distance of Villas Alturas Hotel which offers spectacular views of the South Pacific Ocean. Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary has enclosures for over 75 animals and was designed with the assistance of the Costa Rican government. The wildlife we rehabilitate is cared for by our professional team of qualified staff. We also operate a dynamic volunteer program along with educational programs for local and national schools and international universities. Additionally, we provide guided sanctuary tours where you and your family can learn about the amazing wildlife of Costa Rica and the work that we do to protect it.

Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary is a non-profit organization and every visitor, volunteer and donor directly helps provide food, housing and veterinary care to a diverse range of native animal species.
