New Projects

We are constantly working to improve the conditions for animals and volunteers alike.  Having recently completed construction on new volunteer housing, a shared kitchen and dining room and other communal spaces, we turn our attention to the needs of our wildlife.

2 Bird Houses

4x4x4 Animal Habitat

Each birdhouse will be a 4m width x 4m length x 4m height enclosure.  Like all enclosures, it will be built with double doors to prevent escape as well as feeding drawers which may be filled from the outside, in order to disturb our birds as little as possible at dinner time.

The birdhouse will be able to house any type of local bird but we hope to use them one day as part of our Scarlet Maccaw reintroduction program.

Monkey House

Our monkey house will be built around existing trees on our property so that our little ones can feel the most at home as possible,  and so that they may socialize while awaiting release.

This enclosure will be 12m x 12m x 5 m in height.  A large area where our monkeys will be able to jump, swing and play just like they would in the wild.

12x12x4 Animal Habitat

Feeding Station

Feeding Station

Here we will prepare meals for our animals.  There will be a dedicated refrigerator/freezer, counter top for slicing and dicing and sink for washing up.

Veterinarian Clinic and Quarantine

Vet Clinic and quarantine

Although our animals will first be screened by Deanne, our vet, at one of her clinics in Santa Teresa or Montezuma, we will have an on-site facility for surgeries and other procedures.  We will also have all necessary medicine on hand to ease pain, decrease risk of infection and to sedate animals if necessary.

Next door in quarantine is where our animals will be located for the first 30 days after rescue.  It is of utmost importance to keep new animals separated from the rest in case it is a carrier of communicable disease.  This will also be a time in which we can deworm and deparasite each animal as well as observe their behavior.

Being in smaller enclosures at first, we can reach them easily to examine and address wounds and to feed and/or dehydrate in the case that they cannot do so for themselves.
