RESCATE ANIMAL ZOO AVE

Rescate Animal Zooave is a registered non-profit wildlife rehabilitation facility founded in 1989 and located on 34 acres of natural forest in the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica.

 

Rescate Animal Zooave’s mission is to protect and restore the country's biodiversity through wildlife rehabilitation, endangered species breeding, habitat preservation, and the provision of lifetime care for non-releasable animals.  

There are three main centers at Rescate Animal Zooave’s facility in Alajuela, a state-of-the-art Wildlife Rescue Center and veterinary clinic, an Endangered Wildlife Reproduction Center and a Conservation Park Sanctuary consisting of 35 acres of lush tropical forest with more than 125 species of animals.

 

Over 2000 wild animals are admitted to Rescate Animal Zooave on an annual basis including sloths, jaguars, tapirs, pumas, coyotes and monkeys as well as a wide variety of birds, small mammals and reptiles.

 

Roughly 800 of the birds, mammals, and reptiles that have been rescued cannot be released due to health or behavioral reasons. Non-releasable endangered species are maintained in the Endangered Wildlife Reproduction Center where they have an opportunity to contribute to the survival of their species through successful breeding and release of off-spring. Non-releasable wildlife of more common species are provided with lifetime sanctuary in the Conservation Park Sanctuary.

In addition to the rehabilitation, breeding and sanctuary facilities in Alajuela, Rescate Animal Zooave also maintains two release sites; Bosque Escondido Wildlife Refuge, a 1,800 acre dry tropical forest in the Nicoya Peninsula and; Golfito, a 90-acre tropical rainforest on the Osa Peninsula, where wild animals are returned to their natural environment.

Rescate Animal Zooave has been maintaining these release sites since the late 1990’s and have released many thousands of animals at these sites including a number of globally threatened species such as the Geoffroy's spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi), Black-crowned Central American Squirrel Monkey (Saimiri oerstedii) and Great Curassow (Crax rubra), as well as several locally threatened species including; Grey-headed Chachalaca (Ortalis cinereiceps), Orange-chinned parakeet (Brotogeris jugularis) and Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao).

Geoffrey’s spider monkeys are the most endangered primates in Costa Rica. Rescate Animal Zooave has developed many highly successful soft-release practices that result in excellent integration and high survival rates.

 

WILDLIFE RESCUE CENTER AND VETERINARY HOSPITAL: 

The Wildlife Rescue Center has separate care units for various taxa including primates, parrots and psittacines, raptors, small mammals and reptiles. Each care unit is equipped with an intensive care clinic, incubators, a fly-proof enclosure and a series of step-by-step acclimation enclosure. Each intensive care unit has separate refrigeration, supplies and equipment. From the Wildlife Rescue Center, rehabilitated animals are moved to larger acclimation enclosures in the surrounding forest. The veterinary hospital is equipped with a surgery suite, a laboratory and three intensive care units, each with incubators and separate supplies and equipment. 

ENDANGERED WILDLIFE REPRODUCTION CENTER: 

The Endangered Wildlife Reproduction Center has numerous large, highly naturalized enclosures for various endangered species including; Geoffroy's spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi), Black-crowned Central American Squirrel Monkey (Saimiri oerstedii) and Great Curassow (Crax rubra), as well as several locally threatened species including; Grey-headed Chachalaca (Ortalis cinereiceps), Orange-chinned parakeet (Brotogeris jugularis) and Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao). The facility has separate equipment, feeding supplies and staffing from the Conservation Park Sanctuary 

CONSERVATION PARK SANCTUARY: 

The Conservation Park Sanctuary provides life-time care for over 800 non-releasable wild animals including; jaguars, tapirs, pumas, coyotes and monkeys as well as a wide variety of birds, small mammals, reptiles. The Conservation Park Sanctuary is open to the public and serves to educate the local people about wildlife issues. Animals housed in the Conservation Park Sanctuary are provided with very large, naturalized enclosures and always have the opportunity to move out of view of the public if they choose.
