Projecto Asis Animal Rescue Center Costa Rica
Projecto Asis is a wild animal rescue center located near the Arenal Volcano and the little town of La Fortuna. You can visit the center on your own or you can purchase a tour through Desafio Tours which has an office in La Fortuna. Our guide was excellent and we saw white face monkeys, a baby deer which had lost is foot, a wounded pet raccoon which was very gentle and let your hold him, and wild pigs whose mother had been killed. Several species of birds call Asis home. There are green parrots as well as a large family of ducks. The grounds are tropical with many species of trees and plants. A well maintained walking path makes it easy to hike through and see the birds and animals.
Asis Volunteer Center invites you to participate in their ecological and social volunteer program. We saw several college students from the US who were there for a one month program where they studied and practiced Spanish and also volunteered at the Center.
