In Nuevo Colon, Guanacaste, a wildlife bridge broke from overuse, forcing the wildlife to travel on the live wires killing 3 howler monkeys. KSTR was able to rally the troops and within 16 hours it was fixed and ready for the howlers again! A big thank you to ICE, especially Jaime Bolanos and Jose Carvajal, to CoopeGuanacaste and Gerry Boule for working with KSTR to save the wildlife.
We have featured the little broken-hearted heartbreaker Monty in the most ridiculous yawning video!
We also wanted to remind everyone that any sloth prints sold by the very talented The Watercolor Naturalist - Art by Holly D'Oench will bring 15% proceeds to help our wildlife programs at KSTR!
To buy Holly's sloth prints:
We would like to introduce you to Holly, the watercolor naturalist who does watercolor painting as part of her hobbies.
Holly just recently finished painting a three-toed sloth and uploaded it to Youtube. She talks about the biology of sloths, the differences between different species, their conservation, and much more!
Holly talks about KSTR towards the end of the video and also mentioned that she will be donating 15% of proceeds of each print sale of this painting to KSTR! That's amazing!
You can view the time-lapse sloth painting by clicking the video.
You can also help Holly create more quality videos as well as help KSTR by heading over to Holly's Etsy website and getting your very own sloth painting!
