Today we visited a small ranch just outside of town where woman named Leslie cares for countless birds and mammals. When we arrived she brought out a baby sloth and was feeding it breakfast while telling us her life’s journey to this ranch in Costa Rica where she pours her heart into the recue, rehabilitation and sometimes release of multiple animals. It was a treat to see so many exotic creatures close up and hear their stories. Perhaps more amazing was this woman’s example of unending compassion. She and her team clearly live for these animals and they embody the Costa Rican motto – Pura Vida (Full of Life).
If you find yourself in the area, do not miss a trip to see this woman and meet her animals. They have an awesome B&B right among the animal enclosures with room for 5. Check them out at Toucan Rescue Ranch
