On Friday we went on a field trip to the Congo Trail for World Wildlife Day. We went to an animal sanctuary. The animals that are in the sanctuary are rescued from illegal animal trafficking as well as they care for injured wildlife that is brought there.
We learned that some people come to Costa Rica and trap wild animals like monkeys, parakeets, parrots, snakes and sloths. This is bad for the animals because people do not look after them properly or feeding them the right foods and the animals can die while be transported.
While we were there we got to see, monkeys, turtles, snakes, fish, parrots and parakeets to name some. The parrots can talk , one said “Hola”, “Ha, ha , ha”. We got to hold the turtles, they have tiny claws that feel like a pinch. The monkeys were very curious and playful.
