In 2021, we expanded our rainforest and ocean conservation project activities to Latin America to Costa Rica, where we established our Bosque para los Niňos branch.
Based on a three-month Eye of Jaguar monitoring program in Corcovado NP, Santa Rosa NP and Guanacaste NP, we were accepted into a large family of rangers and conservationists. During this time, we had the opportunity to look under the hood of the real problems Costa Rica is facing and came to the conclusion that we will help here protect the world’s natural wealth of the rainforest and the ocean and expand our field of activity to the American continent.
These problems are mainly poaching of wild animals, capture for the international animal trade, illegal felling of trees and especially illegal fishing in protected marine areas. Part of our mission is cooperation with national parks, rangers, non-profit organizations and scientists on monitoring and research programs for the benefit of nature conservation and, of course, the education of children, youth and the public.
Costa Rica is the new place where projects Green Life II and Blue Life II are being created.
GREEN LIFE COSTA RICA
The Green Life forest reserve serves as an important buffer zone against poaching on the border with the Tapanti National Park and provides unique conditions for volunteer programs.
BLUE LIFE COSTA RICA
The Ocean Education and Whale Center in Cuajinicquil is the first of its kind in the province of Guanacaste and serves as a unique base for volunteer programs and the Eye of the Ocean monitoring program.
EYE OF THE OCEAN
A unique ocean monitoring program focusing on marine mammals, sharks, sea turtles and birds takes place on the project ship The Spartan. Monitoring of humpback whales and sharks, or detecting illegal fishing is our mission for the ocean.
GREEN AND BLUE VOLUNTEER
All our Costa Rican projects are open to volunteering and collaboration with the general environmentally conscious public. Come with us to mountain cloud forests, dry tropical forests, to the Pacific Ocean, to seacoast or even the underwater world. Volunteer programs include cooperation with national parks. Get involved in close cooperation on its protection as a volunteer.
COOPERATION WITH NATIONAL PARKS
Close cooperation with national parks and rangers makes us an important organization supporting the functionality of protected areas and its protection. We carry out monitoring with camera traps, help with a wide range of manual work, including assistance in extinguishing forest fires. We are a universal team for direct field help to rangers and national parks. In the past, we helped in Braulio Carillo NP, currently we work with La Cangreja NP, La Amistad NP and Palo Verde NP. A discussion about cooperation with ACG Guanacaste and Cocos Island NP for the future is open.
