Vision & Values

The JRC aims to continue growing as a center for animal welfare, and a hub of scientific research and study, attracting scientists from all over the world to study the unique animals and eco systems on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

Key Principals of our Foundation

Respect for all animals: Do everything we can to help the animals in our care return to full health and release them back to their national habitats.

Personalized, hands-on care for animals: Act kindly towards animals, and work to give them what they need, in the way they need it.

Partner with People: Harness people’s natural compassion and concern for animals and the environment, and educate them on the plight of animals in Costa Rica, and how they can help.

Responsible leadership: Inspire trust in the community through leadership, integrity and care for the animals that balances the needs of the animals and the community.
