ANIMAL SANCTUARY COSTA RICA WILD LIFE

If you are planning to travel and see Costa Rica wildlife, you’re surely right on the path to the most amazing animal sanctuary Costa Rica – in its entirety – has to offer! Each region of the country has an impressive variety of flora and fauna. So you can expect to see wildlife no matter where you are. Costa Rica currently has 32 national parks, 51 wildlife refuges, 13 forests reserves and 8 biological reserves. With these numbers very present within the population, there is a high concern for conservation efforts.

The biggest threat to wildlife is the rapidly growing human population. Also the extraction of flora and fauna from their habitats. To counteract the negative impact on wildlife Costa Rica passed the Wildlife Conservation Law. In short and easy terms, the law mandates that you do not remove any plant life nor engage with any wild animal by feeding or removing them from their habitat. In fact many rescue centers and sanctuaries emerged from the need to rescue and rehabilitate harmed animals that were victims of wildlife trafficking.

From the wild to a safe forever home

Walk into Diamante’s Animal Sanctuary on a Monday afternoon and you might find that the crocodile feeding is going on. On a first glance, you can see they are healthy, non-handicapped crocodiles and wonder why they are here. Diego, Alex, George and Miyagi – our four Costa Rica Crocodiles – where born and raised in the wild and lived a healthy live. So why are they at our animal sanctuary?

We are not here to tell you why climate change is affecting their reproduction and widespread of population; but we can let you know that there are ways to keep our wildlife save without recurring to hunting.
