Overview

In Costa Rica, 25% of the country is protected land. Despite this, there are still animals that are captured year to year for various reasons. On this program we immerse ourselves working in a local wildlife refuge, where animals are rescued, rehabilitated and, if possible, released back into the wild. 

Program highlights include: Build and Enhance Habitats for Rescued Wildlife at a Locally Run Animal Refuge. Whitewater Raft through the Pacuare River’s Lush Rainforest. Explore Rainforest Waterfalls. Work Alongside Field Biologists Patrolling Beaches on a Sea Turtle Conservation Project. Zipline Through the Tree-tops of the Vibrant Jungle Canopy. Hike Alongside a Volcano and Soak in Tranquil Natural Hot Springs. Immerse Yourself Completely in Costa Rican Culture
