About

Help Planet Rehab protect endangered species!

According to the United Nations Environmental Programme Report, human actions have sped up the extinction rate by 1000%. This translates to losing an estimated 150-200 species each day! You can HELP to be part of the solution!

Planet Rehab is planning on protecting Rainforests in Costa Rica while breeding species at risk of extinction. We have identified the species most at risk and are putting together our breeding program guidelines. The offspring will be released into our protected Rainforest, which will also serve as an educational opportunity for the public to raise awareness, as well as funding. This is a very exciting and challenging opportunity that will require a lot of work. Planet Rehab has over 40 years of experience breeding exotic species, and our team is fluent in Spanish as well as English. We will be visiting Costa Rica for our "Discovery Tour" in Sept. of 2016 to make inroads within the community, establish contacts, evalutate possible sites, etc.

One of the ways we plan on funding this project will be through offering tours to Costa Rica so we also will need travel agents/tour operators. Any experience with Costa Rica is valuable but not necessary.
