Kids Saving the Rainforest was founded by two nine-year-old girls in 1999 for the purpose of educating people around the world about the ecological importance of the rainforest and to set-up programs to preserve and protect the rainforest and its wildlife. KSTR, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, encourages awareness of the critical importance of saving rainforests in general for the survival of our planet and encourages all who participate to take part in sound ecological practices in their homes, schools and communities as well.  KSTR invites participation by schools, children’s organizations and individuals throughout the United States and abroad who further the purpose by learning about the rainforest, doing projects that raise money to donate to KSTR and spreading the message further through educating others.  KSTR reaches out to kids, teachers, parents, rehabilitation specialists, primatologists and others around the world.

Rescue Center: KSTR has a governmental (MINAET) licensed extremely successful Wildlife Rescue Center near Quepos, Costa Rica. KSTR has housing for our veterinarian, vet tech, biologist,  plus 4 wildlife caretakers. KTSR has rescued and rehabilitated 100s of animals with a successful release rate of 50 percent (the norm is 30%).


Wildlife Sanctuary: KSTR also has a Wildlife Sanctuary for animals who can’t be returned to the wild due to a lack of survival skills or injury.


Monkey bridges: KSTR has built over 130 monkey bridges since 2001 to keep monkeys and sloths safely above the road and wires where many lose their lives from being hit by cars or electrocuted.  Since 2001 the 1200 Titi monkeys (of this sub-species worldwide) has increased to approximately 3700 in our area!


Volunteer Program: KSTR has a volunteer center located at our sanctuary and rescue center.  It is on the property of the Blue Banyan Inn which is rated #1 by Trip Advisor, www.bluebanyaninn.com.  Volunteer activities include tropical wildlife zoo keeping, sustainable farming, research projects, plus art and crafts.


The KSTR tour offers a guided visit to our Wildlife Sanctuary.  Visitors learn about KSTR’s many projects, and are educated about the rainforest and its wildlife, its threats, and what you can do to help save it.    They also get a chance to volunteer by making arts and crafts to purchase or donate to the KSTR Store.
Reforestation: KSTR has planted over 6500 trees to reforest and created a biological corridor to enrich the healthy territory of rainforest animals.
