Green Life Reservation – Costa Rica
The building wood was used from non-native cypress trees, which were planted in the reserve by the previous owner in the past. The Costa Rica Government supports the elimination of these non-native trees from the original ecosystems, so we have taken advantage of this possibility.
We chose metal for the volunteer center for reasons of resistance to external influences and especially termites. So far, $15,000 has been invested in construction, including workers, and we expect the entire structure, including sanitary facilities and equipment, to cost about $25,000. Another necessary investment is the off-road car 4×4 (US $12,000), which will play an important role in supply and passenger transport associated with jaguar monitoring throughout Costa Rica.
