    The Future of the Chocuaco's Forest Corridor
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - President and Founder, La Reserva Forst Foundation

Ana is the attorney for the Municipality of Tilaran, our home town. This project has been posted on GlobalGiving since June of 2010. I was interested whether Ana...

    Healthy Native Tropical Forest’s Importance to the
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    You may have read about the alarming rate of species depletion around the world. Though it’s not  a story that makes the nightly news, it has been documented in various scientific journals and conservation magazines. No one knows the long term effect of this increasingly rapid loss of species diversity, but it is...

    Our Dependence Upon Trees
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    Did you know that the average American family generates about 20 tons of CO2 per year? There are many ways we can each help reduce our footprint: driving less, keeping the temperature of our homes a couple degrees higher in the summer and lower in the winter, and buying locally produced goods to name a few. All are...

    A Vital Biological Corridor
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    LRFF’s credibility continues to grow in the local community as projects are funded and local land owners receive their Payments for Environmental Services (PES). It may be difficult for some of us to imagine the difference these payments of $300 per hectare per year can make for local Costa Rican families. It can be...

    Christmas in the Tropics
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    Last year for the holidays I made donations to La Reserva’s projects on Global Giving in the names of each of my grand nieces and nephews. Most of them are preschool age, but are old enough to appreciate that their present helped create better homes for monkeys, sloths, and other creatures of the jungle. For the older...

    Chocuaco’s Forest Corridor
    By - Mary Blizzard - Founding member of LRFF
    We would love to fund and complete this project this year in honor of Jose Luis Villalobos (Chocuaco) whose dream it was to connect the two forest islands on his property. His widow, Ana Cecilia, has continued to hold to this dream and we at La Reserva, with your help, can make it become a reality. This corridor will not...

    Developments at Chocuacos
    By - Mary Blizzard-Kelly - Founding member of LRFF
    Costa Rica is one of the most bio-diverse countries on the planet, and we are losing that diversity at an alarming rate. Just one example: the howler monkey population has dropped by 50% in just the last 15 years -- mostly due to loss of habitat. This rapid rate of species depletion is accelerated by the isolation that...

    THE STORY OF CHOCÜACO’S CORRIDOR
    By - Roberta Ward Smiley - Founder and President of LRFF
    This project has a bittersweet story. Chocüaco was the nickname of Jose Luis Villalobos, a much loved local farmer, attorney and bus company owner. Many of you won’t remember LRFF’s participation in the global Giving Open Challenge last year. By receiving over $4000 from a minimum of 50 unique donors we won a...
