The Wild Sun Rescue Center is a non profit organization located on the Nicoya Peninsula in Cabuya, Costa Rica. Wild Sun borders the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, home to hundreds of unique animal and plant species. We are not only dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of our local wildlife but also finding solutions to the problems they are facing. Through reforestation projects and educational programs we hope to make a difference in our local environment and also assist with the preservation of biodiversity everywhere. Our whole planet is a cohesive network of smaller eco-systems which depend on one another in order to endure and thrive.
We would love for you to join us by either volunteering or donating to one of our projects! It will take all of us to make a difference by reducing our waste, reversing the pollution of our air and water, stopping the over exploitation of Earth’s natural resources, and supporting projects like ours to reverse the damage that has occurred to our ecosystems. You can make a difference!
We are located near Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve is the pioneer of wildlife and environmental conservation in Costa Rica, which became the first protected area in Costa Rica in 1963. Situated on the extreme southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula it protects 1788 hectares of ocean and 1270 hectares of tropical forest, 15% of which is primary forest where rare tree, bird and other endangered animal species can find refuge.
Up until now, 150 species of trees and around 240 species of birds have been recorded in Cabo Blanco, making it an important wildlife sanctuary.
Among Cabo Blanco’s endangered animals are the Jaguar, Puma, Ocelot, Jaguarundi, Margay cat, Spotted Owl, Caracara, and Giant Egret.
