Wild Sun Rescue Center is a non-profit organization located in Cabuya, Costa Rica. We border the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, home to hundreds of unique animal and plant species. Wild Sun is not only dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of our local wildlife but also to finding solutions to the problems they are facing.
Through reforestation projects and educational programs we hope to make a difference in our local environment by preserving biodiversity.
Join us! Either by volunteering or by donating to one of our projects. It will take all of us to reverse the damage that has occurred to our ecosystems and one way to make a difference is by supporting projects like ours. Be the change!
We are located near the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. Cabo Blanco is the pioneer of wildlife and environmental conservation, becoming 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.
