Ruta 27 (Costa Rica) trains its staff to handle exotic and dangerous animals

As part of its social responsibility programme, Globalvia Ruta 27 and the Santa Ana snake
refuge have joined forces to help wild animals that undergo accidents on Ruta

For two days, 20 employees
of Globalvia Ruta 27, including team leaders, patrols and the control centre were
trained by the refuge staff.

This group received
theoretical and practical guidance on how to rescue wild animals such as an
injured toucan, the instruments to be used to handle a snake and the basic
rules for rescuing animals such as owls, raccoons and tortoises, among others.

“For Globalvia Ruta
27 it is important to develop this kind of partnership, which forms part of our
commitment to Costa Rica and its biodiversity,”” said Globalvia Ruta 27 General
Director Gastón Oróstegui.

From this week on,
the employees will be able to rescue and attend to wild animals on Ruta 27,
which will be taken to the snake refuge to recover and re-join their natural
condition. The project has been enhanced by the our relationship with the Fundación
Recate Animal.
