Saturday at Camp  Osita

On Saturday morning a few of the volunteers went to visit a local bird sanctuary, owned and run by Patrick Dunn. The day started with a short bumpy ride on the collectivo, the local bus.

My Adventure  Begins

Costa Rica Big Cats, Primates and Turtles was a dream come true. This project includes a variety of wildlife that is only found in Costa Rica.
