Kids Saving the Rainforest

Kids Saving the Rainforest was started by two 9 year old girls in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Since 1999 KSTR has grown to be an international organization that receives volunteers from all over the world! Our Rescue Center and Sanctuary rescues on average 200 animals each year. As you can imagine monkeys and sloths aren't paying customers, so we have to rely on the generosity and kindness of like minded people who want to make a difference and save the tropcial rainforest of Costa Rica.

Currently we are home to 43 resident animals who live in our sanctuary and 21 animals that are candidates for release.
We are the only wildlife rescue center located within the Central Pacific Coast.
That is why we are asking very humbly that you consider donating to our cause! No donation is too small and every penny goes towards caring for the animals!
