Who We Are

Mesoamerican Rescue Center was created by the family of German Sibaja , a local citizen of Puerto Viejo, Sarapiqui in Costa Rica. German, his wife Lili and daughters have  always been interested in saving injured and unprotected animals and returning them to their natural environment after recovering. Later, a good friend of the family joined this amazing project. J. Adan Ruiz; Veterinary Technician, conservationist, and actor from Mexico/USA is now part of this dream to rescue and preserve our endemic fauna and ecosystems. 

We are a team of volunteers that promote animal welfare. Families and friends from Costa Rica, United Sates, Mexico, and Nicaragua are part of this mission in educating communities.

In God We Trust!
