Dear Animal Rescue Project Session 1 students,
Oh what a time we had. Your group kept us on our toes!!! You ate all of the fried plantains you could get your hands on and always wanted to pay a visit to Robin’s for ice cream. When you weren’t eating, you were serving the animals of Nosara in any way that you could. It was truly inspiring to see you all interact with so many different critters; from centipedes in the hotel to dogs anywhere we went.
Remember that day when we castrated 60 animals?? Think of the lasting impact that will have on this community- fewer street dogs, fewer accidental litters with no one to feed them, and fewer territorial male dogs. You truly supported the mission of Nosara Animal Care. Additionally, you served the animals here by giving baths and vaccinations to animals in Guiones. You helped to count and document all of the animals in parts of Nosara by doing a census. You helped to build a greenhouse that will eventually offset thousands of dollars in costs for Nosara Refuge for Wildlife. You educated and entertained families at Mascotamania.
But we can’t forget all the fun we had- from swimming in the river on our Rio Celeste trip, to splashing around on Guiones Beach, to surfing, zipping, paddleboarding, and horseback riding, or just sharing a meal together at Dos Lorena’s. Thank you for joining us on this adventure. We loved getting to know you and seeing you grow. We hope you continue to serve animals and your communities wherever life takes you. Remember to travel sustainably, support local businesses, and consider your environmental impact.
With all our love,
Jane, Kate, and Gabriel
Your International Team
