Kids Saving the Rainforest (KSTR) Wildlife Tour

Titi monkeyBy Dani Dion, Doglandia Manager and KSTR Volunteer

KIDS SAVING THE RAINFOREST, (so named when it was started 15 years ago by two 9-year old girls), specializes in the RESCUE & RELEASE of wild animals. There are SO many special success stories to share and hear from the animal caretaker! However, there are many animals, which cannot be released, and KSTR offers safe sanctuary to them. They are given an environment in which they can thrive and enjoy life, along with great nourishment and care! As you can imagine, this takes a good deal of time and money to run a rescue center/sanctuary, which is primarily funded from donations, volunteer stays and tours. KSTR is a registered non-profit organization in the US, and one of the few MINAE-approved, legal rescue centers in the country.

We invite you to take this special TOUR and come see the dedication and love it takes to help save these rainforest animals; over 130 animals every year.

Meet our precious Monkeys up close: the endangered Titi Squirrel, Whiteface Capuchin, Spiders, Marmosets, and Tamarins! Other animals like a kinkajou, a porcupine and different parrots and more will also be seen on the tour! One of our Animal Caretakers will take you through the Wildlife Sanctuary so you can see and learn about wildlife animals. Our Vet Tech will introduce you to a 2-toed or 3-toed sloth or another recently rescued animal being rehabilitated and being prepped for release in our Rescue Center Clinic. You will have a close, clear view through our clinic window and appreciate the care given to these animals. You will also walk through the largest enclosed cage in Central America and see animals all around you! A light snack will be served after the 2-hour tour!

The best price for any tour in the area; suggested donation of $40 for adults and $25 for children under 18!

The tour is available Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 to 11 AM and reservations are necessary. Special tours for groups can also be arranged.

The Sanctuary is located about 7 kms outside of Quepos Central on the property of the Blue Banyan Inn; part of a 70 acre property that has a mountain view and is surrounded by primary and secondary rainforests! You can drive there or have KSTR arrange transportation, (which is not included in the tour price). For directions go to bluebanyaninn.com.

Please contact volunteer@kstr.org or call us at 2777-2572 or 2777-1548 or 2777-2592 to make arrangements. You will enjoy this special tour, the only one of its kind in the area and you will learn so much more about KIDS SAVING THE RAINFOREST and how you can help save the rainforest!
