Why is the jaguar called “Guapo” in our Sanctuary?
Guapo stands as our resident jaguar from Guapiles , he came to Rescate Wildlife when he was but a helpless cub, discovered floating on a log in the aftermath of hurricane Otto.
At that tender age, he still relied on his mother‘s nourishing milk for sustenance. Yet, given his size and vulnerability, a return to the wild wasn‘t possible. However, we‘ve committed ourselves to his well-
being, providing him with an expansive enclosure, abundant environmental stimuli, and meticulous care. He symbolizes the magnificence of his species and reminds us of our duty to protect and cherish such remarkable creatures.
