Dear Friends of the Sanctuary,
Here at the Sanctuary we count our blessings in so many different ways.
Seeing the flock of free flying scarlet macaw pass overhead is still as exhilarating as when we released our first bird almost 20 years ago.
The picture featured above is of Ali, a scarlet that was incubated and raised by two captive macaw that had been released one year prior. Unlike her parents, she has known only freedom.
The jubilation one has when finding Lily’s tracks in the beach with her young is indescribable.
There are no words that come to my mind to express the joy when we spot Lulu, the howler monkey passing through with her troop.
What made all of these successful releases come to fruition was the dedication from our staff, cooperation with MINAE—the Park Guards, and from the people that have supported us.
Conservation efforts are not cheap, they can only happen through the generosity of people that have faith in our efforts and believe in what we do—save wildlife for release and to humanely house those less fortunate.
For this, we are most appreciative and give thanks during this “Dia de Gracias”.
