Some very special visitors recently came to Kids Saving the Rainforest!
Jeff Corwin is a biologist and conservationist well-known for his tv
documentaries educating the public on wildlife. On December 8th he came to KSTR with his film crew for his weekly television show, Ocean Treks with
Jeff & his crew worked with Dra Sofia Bernal, our dedicated
veterinarian, and other members of our staff, filming in our clinic and
rescue center. The footage will be included in an upcoming episode of the
show, which airs on NBC.
They focused on our rescue and release efforts, and even accompanied Dra Bernal on the release of a Grey Crowned Squirrel Monkey named Cocorita!
Coco came to KSTR after a concerned citizen found a child holding her. She showed signs of neurological damage and possible head trauma, but following her rehabilitation and final health check was finally ready to return to the wild. Jeff & his crew were able to join Dra Bernal as Coco was reunited with her troop.
He also met Peanut. Orphaned when his mom was hit by a car in Costa Rica, now it’s been rescued by Kids Saving the Rainforest hopefully as it gets stronger, it will be released back into the rain forest where he belongs.
