Proyecto Asis Wildlife Rescue Center

141, La Fortuna , Costa Rica

The Basics

Parrots, monkeys, kinkajou, and peccaries are a few of the species that call the rescue center home. Some of these neglected or abandoned creatures are even able to be rehabilitated and released back into the wild. A visit to the center is an excellent way to see the animals up close, while simultaneously learning and contributing to the preservation of local wildlife. There are also tours, homestays, and more extensive volunteer programs available.

This was a highlight in La Fortuna. Our kids aged 3-7 loved it also. The staff walked through and explained each animal and their hopes to release them back into the wild. We then got to prepare their food and then go back and feed each animal which the kids loved. It was truly a unique experience with animals that are local to Costa Rica. Wonderful friendly staff.
