Kids Saving the Rainforest (KSTR) began in 1999 in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica when Janine Licare and Aislin Livingstone were 9 years old. Janine and Aislin saw the rainforest disappearing from their beloved home and the negative impact of this on the animals, particularly the mono titi monkeys. They were kids inspired to save the precious rainforest, so voila, our name became Kids Saving the Rainforest!
Since our inception, KSTR has grown in leaps and bounds. Our programs include:
Reforestation Project – KSTR has planted over 6,900 trees and aims to be sustainable by growing the food for resident animals, as well as 305 breadfruit trees donated from Trees that Feed.
KSTR continues to grow and expand and our current priority is to connect with more concerned people to help support the continued operation of our enormously successful animal rehabilitation program. We have created a solution to work for the community as well as the animals of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, and we need your support.
While KSTR continues to co-ordinate these exciting projects plus furthering our ongoing relationships with schools around the world and taking part in international research projects, we need financial help to support the Rescue Center. Please visit our Donation and Adoption page to see how to help in the way that inspires you the most! Donations to our 501(3)C US nonprofit are 100% tax deductible. The animals of the rainforest and future generations thank you!
