Wild Wednesday: Ginger had another baby!
Every other Wednesday, we bring you an adorable photo and the brief story of an animal at Sibu Wildlife Sanctuary near Nosara, Guanacaste.Today, we have a message about Ginger, a former resident at Sibu.
Ginger is the Alpha female of a local troop, and we are thrilled to announce the birth of her newest baby.
Ginger was a resident of Sibu Wildlife Sanctuary many years ago when she was found injured. She was taken in to our care and nurtured until she was well enough to be reunited with her original troop.
She is part of one of the many troops who pass through the sanctuary grounds as part of their regular route. For this reason, we have had the privilege of watching she and her babies thrive over the years.
Sibu Wildlife Sanctuary is searching for a “spicy” name for the baby. Ginger’s other babies are named Curry and Cinnamon. To submit a suggestion, visit Sibu on Facebook or Instagram and look for the post about Naming Ginger’s Baby.

Sibu Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Santa Marta, located a few kilometers northwest of Nosara on the Nicoya Peninsula.
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. When the animals are determined to be strong, healthy and old enough to be re-integrated into the jungle they begin a step-down release program. Animals unlikely to survive in the wild receive a permanent enriching habitat for their life-term care.
