“A great organization helping the local animals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Brenda is very knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area and she has helped countless monkey's and other animals in need of care who have been injured or are sick. Everyone should go visit, and make a donation to this wonderful organization. If you are planning a trip to Nosara, visit their website. They are always in need of bandages and antibiotics and Brenda has listed the things that are currently needed.

“Meaningful Excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I took my sometimes jaded teenage girls up to see Brenda and hear about the work that she has devoted her life to. Seeng the photos and meeting the animals was a moving experience for all of us. The cost is $50 cash per person, which goes directly to funding their work. It was money well spent. We left glad that the world has people like Brenda in it, and that she was willing to give us two hours of her time.

Amazing tour of her facility . She has given her life to help rehab these animals and such a great advocate. Located high in the mountain the gentle welcome breeze was welcomed in the heat of the day. Thanks Brenda . Pura Vida !

“Just what Nosara needs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

They work tirelessly to save and rehabilitate orphaned and injured Howler monkeys. I support them with donations of cash and my artwork for their annual benefit. They are responsible for getting so many of the hot high power lines insulated, saving countless monkeys from death and unspeakable suffering!

“This is a very worthwhile cause.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

It's good to see some of the local animals and here about what's necessary to protect them. I recommend that if you have the time to check it out. The Wildlife Rescue program is very interesting and can use your assistance.
