Fieldtrip Day

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.

  1. It is so nice that they rescue these animals and take care of them. Is that monkey smoking? He is holding something red in his mouth. We went to a big cat retirement home yesterday. They take in lions, Bobcats, bears, birds,Tigers from the circus or people who don’t look after them. They will not ever leave this home. A real nice place for them to be well looked after and fed.

  2. I just love reading your blog and pictures to go with it. You are so lucky that you have the opportunity to visit and live in another country, even if it is only for a year.
    Look forward to more of your adventures!
