Kids Saving the Rainforest (KSTR) is offering a new tour of its Wildlife Sanctuary for animals born in captivity or permanently injured that can never live in the wild again. Led by KSTR wildlife vet Pia Martin or by volunteer wildlife rehabber Trevor Tierney, the tour includes a slide show of the wildlife at the rehab center, a brief history of KSTR and its projects, a tour of the organic garden, picking and eating fruit or sugarcane, and volunteer opportunities to make jewelry or bookmarks to sell in the KSTR store. It includes a light snack, transportation from Hotel Mono Azul to the sanctuary and back, and all activities. The price is $35 for adults and $25 for children. All proceeds go toward efforts to save the rain forest. For $10 more, guests can enjoy a sunset swim and dinner at the Hotel Mono Azul Rainforest Restaurant. For more information, call 2777-2572 or 2777-1548, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
