The Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary offers tours of the sanctuary from Tuesday to Sunday at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Tours are offered in English and Spanish. We are closed to the public on Mondays. Tours last between 1 and 1.5 hours and provide information on Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary’s history, our aims and objectives, the animals’ individual stories and our rescue work. Visitors will meet the sanctuary residents while learning about their history, biology and conservation needs. We have a wide variety of animals including: spider monkeys, capuchin monkeys, sloths, anteaters, raccoons, parrots, toucans, raptors, porcupines and kinkajous. Visitors are not allowed to touch the animals in accordance with Costa Rican law. Many of the animals in our sanctuary have had traumatic experiences at the hands of humans before they came to us, so we try to create a natural captive environment for them with other members of their species. This hands-off policy allows the animals to live in a low stress but naturally enriched environment.
The donations from these tours goes directly and completely towards running the sanctuary and rescue center (the latter is not open to visitors as we have to keep human contact to a minimum in order to rehabilitate and release wild animals).
