An increase in human-animal interactions has led to a rise in the number of wild animal related calls the National Fire Department of Costa Rica (BCBCR) has received. However, the firefighters lack guidance to safely and effectively respond to these calls. The goal of our project was to develop, for the BCBCR, a field guide and a manual with training material, including interactive maps with locational information on animal organizations that accept the animals. We interviewed firefighters, wild animal experts, and animal center staff members to determine safe and effective methods of animal management. We recommended that more resources be devoted to expanding the contents of the field guide and manual, providing training workshops, and creating an improved system for gathering data. -
