  • When you visit a wildlife sanctuary like SIBU it is amazing not only day seeing anteaters, toucans, monkeys and sloths up close but it is also a great way to spend your money giving back to a non-profit organization that helps the animals that have been injured from increased tourism. The Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary is located around 1.5 east and uphill from Dominical, this wildlife sanctuary takes in injured and orphaned animals as well as illegal pets. Its mission is to rehabilitate those that can be and reintroduce them to the wild, and look after those that cannot. Another goal of Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary is to rescue and foster the appreciation for the wildlife. Through the interaction with educational system, the sanctuary expects to promote the development of the next generation of biologists, veterinarians, naturalists and ecologists. The sanctuary also operates a dynamic volunteer program along with educational programs for local and national school and international universities. Additionally there are guided sanctuary tours available where you and your family can learn about the amazing wildlife of Costa Rica and the work that the staff do protect it.
