Welcome to this month’s newsletter! As we are slowly approaching Costa Rica’s summer, and leaving the rainy season (or the ‘green season’ for you optimists), we are lucky to be getting a larger number of volunteers helping out at the sanctuary. Thanks to the increased help, we are managing to step up on the sanctuary’s enrichment program, including some exciting new projects which we will update you with next month.
A couple of weeks ago, a mealy Amazon parrot flew into one of our staff’s garden. Despite trying everything possible to put it back in the wild, this parrot did not want to leave; allowing us to assume that it was kept as a pet, and either escaped or was set free intentionally. Godzilla, as we named the parrot, is slowly being introduced to Julian, another Amazon parrot in the hopes that they will provide each other with companionship.
