Midnight was rescued from Los Arenales in March after he fell from electrical wires and hit his head. At our onsite clinic, we discovered that electrocution was the cause of Midnight's fall. So in addition to treatment for blindness and muscle tremors caused by head trauma, Midnight was treated for electrical burns on his chest and tail. 2 weeks after treatment started, Midnight's vision started to come back. 3-4 weeks after the fall, his muscle tremors stopped. After 10 weeks in our clinic, his burns healed and his eyesight came back completely! Midnight is now out of the clinic and regaining strength in one of our outdoor enclosures. Once he has gained a little weight and grown back some of the fur that was burned off, he will be released back into the forest. ... See MoreSee Less
Another adult male howler monkey has been hit by a car and badly broken a leg. Just like the monkey we rescued a few weeks ago, Han will be driven to San Jose this week where a titanium plate will be inserted into his leg to fix the fracture. This special surgery comes at an extra expense, costing approximately $600, not including x-rays, transport or 3 months of rehabilitation and care.
We are incredibly thankful that as soon as they heard about this emergency surgery, Surfing Nosara generously donated the funds to pay for this urgent operation! Surfing Nosara has been a wonderful supporter of Refuge for Wildlife, assisting us with funding for our Wildlife Crossings and Stop the Shocks programs as well as providing funds for our clinic renovation! Thank you Surfing Nosara for your continued support!
If anyone is interested in helping to fund Han's 3 month post-op rehabilitation and care (approx $250 a month), you can make a donation to our Veterinary Services & Clinic Fund online: refugeforwildlife.org/donate/... See MoreSee Less

Jasper's mother had been spotted in Playa Pelada where she had been very painfully trying to survive to care for her son after being severely injured due to electrocution. Special thanks to Ryan Bombard from the Nosara Bomberos for helping us rescue the mother and her baby. Sadly, Jasper's mother was terminally injured and died soon after rescue. Jasper is only a few weeks old and will stay will us at the Refuge for approximately 2.5 years until he's ready to start our release program. ... See MoreSee Less
