SIBU’s mission is to rescue injured, orphaned, and displaced wild animals and provide them immediate medical care, rehabilitation, and eventual release into the wild. When the animals are determined to be strong, healthy and old enough to be re-integrated into the jungle they begin a step-down release program. Animals unlikely to survive in the wild receive a permanent enriching habitat for their life-term care.
We are also educators and advocates who work cooperatively with other organizations to encourage respect for animals’ lives and preservation of their habitat. We rehabilitate animals with assistance from veterinary and wildlife specialists and work closely with Costa Rica’s electric company (ICE) to prevent electrocutions.
