Providing animal encounters with a focus on conservation, Foundation Jaguar Rescue Center works primarily with mistreated, orphaned, injured, and confiscated wildlife native to Costa Rica. Once rehabilitated, the center's proteges return to their natural habitats, located in protected areas that serve as a safe haven for endangered and rare species. Run by local zoologists, the center raises awareness about the importance of conservation and allows you to interact with many of its animals, which include numerous species of amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals.
