Our new Wildlife Sanctuary is designed for animals that can never be released because either they were raised in captivity or because they a permanently injured or handicapped so can never live in the wild again. We have retained a full time wildlife manager Sam Trull who is also a fabulous photographer plus we continue to be extremely grateful to enjoy veterinarian Dr. Pia Martin’s assistance part time at both the Wildlife Rescue and Sanctuary. This level of staffing plus the help we get from our expert primatology student volunteers and fabulous support staff gives us excellent professional care for our animals.
Our Wildlife Sanctuary will eventually have an educational center and stations which will empower children and adults to help us save the rainforest and teach children and adults both why our rainforests are so incredibly important to all of us. In addition to our permanently injured or handicapped animal residents received through our rehab we also have Panamanian (Geoffreys Tamarin) monkeys and marmoset monkeys donated to KSTR by a retired primatologist in Costa Rica as well as both male and female spider monkey residents.
