The Osa Wildlife Sanctuary is dedicated to the care of orphaned and injured wild animals for subsequent re-introduction to their original habitat. The Sanctuary is located on the northeast corner of the Golfo Dulce and cannot be reached by any means other than boat. Facilities at the Sanctuary include housing for injured animals, and medical treatment and staff to care for and rear vulnerable animals. The facility receives mostly juvenile animals that are orphaned by illegal hunting or that have been for some reason abandoned by their mothers. Many of these tiny vulnerable creatures are friendly and can be petted, making this destination one of the most kid-friendly activities in the whole region. You can hire a boat to transport you to the Osa Sanctuary for a private visit, or join a variety of tours that combine the Osa Wildlife Sanctuary with boat tours of the gulf, dolphin watching, and snorkeling.
