How are we already approaching the end of the year? It feels as though the year was put in slow motion and suddenly the fast forward button was hit and is just around the corner. What a whirlwind of a year it has been. Plans have not gone as we hoped, our day to day has taken a degree turn, and we are missing our volunteers, interns, visitors, and everyday norms more as each day passes.

While it could be easy to feel down on our luck, we are looking at how fortunate we are to have local volunteers willing to come, the support of donors here and around the world, and to still be able to continue our work rescuing wildlife.

None of this would be possible without you! In news not related to Covid, we have been trying out some different activities to ensure we keep our spirits up, or at least just get a good laugh in every week at our meetings. Each Monday in August we have had a different theme and our staff has not disappointed. We are dressing up and competing for who dressed the best or worst to meet the theme.

Animal day, was the best and most interesting so far. Here we have an anteater, a spider monkey, a hermit crab, a male howler monkey, and a crocodile. Maybe we do not look exactly like these animals, but the laughs we had were priceless during the difficult times. This month we were able to witness something in our sanctuary that was so natural and why we encourage you to call a rescue center before doing anything with a wild animal unless it is obviously hurt or in immediate danger.

One Saturday morning one of our staff members saw a baby olingo in the plants behind our spider monkey enclosure. As we advise everyone to do when finding a young animal, we stood back and watched to see if its mother was nearby. Just a few moments later we saw the mother high up in the tree searching for the baby and a way to get down to it. After a little time, the baby found a tree to get higher up towards the mom and they were reunited. Baby animals are best raised with their own mother and when finding any young, that are not in immediate danger nearby dogs or road traffic, for example it is best to call a rescue center to see what they advise.

We love to help all of the animals but want to make sure they are given the best chance at a completely natural life. Now for one of the main reasons we are here; rescuing wildlife in need. This month, as all others, has brought quite a variety Hermit crab lookin to break from the Slovakia animals to our clinic. These animals were being kept in an illegal zoo and brought to us to get evaluated.

The crocodiles were very large but healthy after the examination. She was very nervous and stressed so we did not do too much in regard to medical examinations that night. Since she showed no external injuries, we thought it best to give her the chance to rest and get accustomed to her new surroundings. Now that she has been here a few weeks and we have been able to check and observe her, she is healthy and has been moved to a large enclosure away from people to reduce any extra daily stress.

We are in discussions with other sanctuaries to transfer her to as we do not currently have space or funds to build her the proper enclosure she needs. The coyote inspecting its new surroundings. Like many of the parrots that come into our care, this month we received two more parrots that were being kept as pets but were confiscated by MINAE. Unfortunately, parrots that have been pets for many years do not display natural behaviors, preventing them from being candidates for release. Similar to the parrots in our permanent care, these two made sounds mimicking human noises, were fed a poor diet, and very habituated to humans.

Working with other sanctuaries allowed us to find a place where they will have more space, as our aviary is currently full.

We appreciate the work we are all doing around the country to care for wildlife, giving them the best chance in the wild or high quality of life. An adult two-fingered sloth Choloepus hoffmanni came into our care after it had been electrocuted. Electrocutions can be difficult as the animal can continue to develop burns even after a couple of days.

She was weak and not moving much the first couple of days in our clinic but our vet staff is smart and determined. We have been treating it with different medications for pain, anti-inflammatory, and antibiotics and seeing great improvements with activity and eating habits.

We hope to put her in a larger enclosure soon to allow her to move around more and regain her strength. Our veterinary team attending to the electrocuted two-toed sloth. The phones have been ringing for emergencies. A young iguana Iguana iguana was brought to us after two young men saw it hit by a car. Fortunately, this little one only sustained minor injuries. There was some swelling on the face and after a day it went down and he was very active. We are glad to have a quick recovery and release for this young iguana.

An Olive Ridleys Lepidochelys olivacea pictured below was brought to us by the coast guard. We are trying all we can to get her strong to have a rapid release without the stress of being transferred all over the country. The olive ridley sea turtle on the x-ray table.

In order to reduce stress, we covered her eyes to prohibit her from seeing us. Fortunately, this month has not brought too many baby animals, but we do not want to say that because when we do, the nursery seems to fill up overnight. But, we did receive one baby wooly opossum Caluromys derbianus after it was found alone. The people who brought it thought the mother was killed, but could not confirm.

With animals, it can be hard to know their real story, if they are sick, injured, or abandoned. In this case, the woolly opossum is now drinking milk very well and on its own. We also received a call about a howler monkey Alouatta palliata that was being observed after what was thought to be electrocution. A member of staff went searching for it and unfortunately could not get it as Hermit crab lookin to break from the Slovakia was far up in the trees as howlers should be. We will be making a few passes here over the next couple of days to try and collect him to get the care he needs. We hope to find him and give this young male the treatment he needs.

While one staff member was searching for the howler, another found a grey-necked wood rail Aramides cajaneus on his way home from work. We went to meet him to bring the bird back to the sanctuary to see how we could help. Upon arrival, we were sad to see it had multiple breaks in the right leg, abrasions in the left leg, and numerous breaks in the right-wing. Upon discussion with the vet team, they did make the difficult decision to humanely euthanize this animal. The vet team goes through all of the potential options and treatment possibilities, looking at what is best for the animal before deciding what to do.

Sometimes lengthy treatment plans involving daily capture and medication can put more stress on an animal that is already trying to heal and can cause more harm than good in the long run. Shortly after these two calls, an aracari Pteroglossus frantzii was brought to us after it flew into a window. This is a common occurrence here and around the world and we encourage everyone to use curtains, blinds, or even window decals so birds see the window as a solid object.

While examining the animal in the clinic, we found a lot of blood in the mouth. As we were cleaning to prevent blood from getting in the airway, the aracari, unfortunately, started seizing, showing us there was major brain trauma. This was a sad end to our workday, but the following releases that took place this month help remind us these tough days do get better. The baby kinkajou Potos flavus that was found in a palm plantation is doing well. He is growing, eating more, in a larger space so learning to move more, and overall, on route to release. We are fortunate to be able to continue this care and rehabilitation due to your support and those from around the world.

The juvenile raccoon Procyon lotor that has been in our care for almost three months has been moved to one of our pre-release enclosures to follow protocols in place to reduce the risk of habituation. Before it was moved, it was weaned from the milk and introduced foods to prepare it for adulthood. The baby two-fingered sloth Choloepus hoffmanni we rescued last month has been transferred to another sanctuary as we have to make sure we are utilizing our resources responsibly.

Because we are low on volunteers and staff, we spoke with another sanctuary that is able to provide for it for the long term. Baby sloths are typically with their mother for about a year, so it is a long term commitment and expense for any sanctuary, but particularly with the struggles the pandemic has brought to us financially.

We know it is in good hands and will get great care. Some changes and moves have been made within our permanent residents. He is unable to be released due to being too habituated to humans, so we have created a temporary location for him with natural plants and branches for him to explore. Leo the Ocelot.

One of the squirrel monkeys Saimiri oerstedii citrinellus from our nursery pictured below has been introduced to an adult, male squirrel monkey in our rehab center. Both these primates were ly kept as pets and due to their behavior, they are not releasable. We will be transferring the two squirrel monkeys to our sanctuary once they get a little more accustomed to each other.

Lolita pictured below was kept as a pet for many years and because of the behaviors she displays, we are trying to pair these two up since it is great natural behavior to encourage and even a form of enrichment. Right now they are on separate perches able to view and hear each other in hopes that they might bond.
