ASANA (Friends of Nature, Central and Southern Pacific Coast) Costa Rica

The mission of ASANA is to secure the long-term conservation of the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor and surrounding natural areas by empowering local communities and residents to take action in support of conservation actions. In particular, we support the development of local community organizations, cooperation among government and non-governmental organizations, and environmental education. We serve as a local coordinator of research activities, and we act as advocate when required to address high-priority needs.

ASANA Won International Award for Best Non-Profit!

Dear friends of ASANA (and friends of Andrea!) –

Yes! ASANA has won the PeaceJam global 2015 Hero Award for Best Non-profit act!  (Check out the attached press releases!) This is amazing recognition for all the hard work our tiny non-profit has done over the years. PeaceJam works with 13 Nobel Peace Prize winners to support social and environmental causes around the world.  While this is quite an honor for us as an organization, we see this as a recognition for all the work that all of us – especially the Local Council the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor – are doing to ensure the long-term sustainable use and conservation of Costa Rica’s unique natural heritage.

ASANA has been invited to the awards ceremony in Monte Carlo on 14 June. The award will be presented by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Adolfo Perez Esquivel. PeaceJam provides no travel support for ASANA but the board believes it is very important that Andrea be there to receive the award for Costa Rica on this international stage.  This opportunity will, no doubt, raise ASANA to an entirely new level of exposure, enabling us to further our mission. To this end, we have launched a campaign to raise funds to pay for Andrea’s trip to Monte Carlo.  Jack Ewing of Hacienda Baru Ecotours (www.haciendabaru.com) has kicked of the donations with a $1000 contribution! 

 So if you can, please support us with a donation of $100 or more. Go to the GlobalGiving site: "Sponsor Andrea to accept 2015 Hero Award!" or go to https://goto.gg/20706 .  THIS IS TIME SENSITIVE! We need to get the funds together by 10 June to be able to purchase flight tickets for Andrea. 

Thanks for your continued support!
