SIBU Sanctuary breaking ground on

HUGE “STEP OUT” Habitat Expansion

Following closely on the heals of the successful CASINO NIGHTS (see below) we have already started on the expansion of the much needed habitats here in SIBU. These structures will share sliding walls to better accommodate the various needs of animals both going through our Step Down Release Program as well as those who enter the gates of SIBU. With more and more wildlife being brought to SIBU Sanctuary, we have to step up our efforts to care for these unfortunate ones and set them free back into the wild.

More funds are in great need to complete these additions and make them operational. “If we had of waited until we had the funds, we’d still be waiting”, says Steve Coan – husband of SIBU SANCTUARY founder Vicki Coan. “We’ll build until we run out of money and hopefully – just hopefully – funds will come through to complete these very needed additions.”

Our Mission

Nosara Wildlife Sanctuary at SIBU’s mission is to rescue injured, orphaned, and displaced wild animals and provide them immediate medical care, rehabilitation, and eventual release into the wild. Animals unlikely to survive in the wild receive attentive, long-term care. We are also educators and advocates who work cooperatively with other organizations to encourage respect for animals’ lives and preservation of their habitat. We rehabilitate animals with assistance from veterinary and wildlife specialists and work closely with Costa Rica’s electric company (ICE) to prevent electrocutions
