This native, tropical forest restoration project increases the Tenorio Protected Zone by 1½ hectares (3.7 acres). It also provides a living corridor connecting primary forest with a remnant forest.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Forest remnants require animals to use any means necessary to seek out needed food and potential mates. Monkeys and sloths in particular currently use barbed wire that can cause deadly mutilations, electric cables that lead to electrocutions, & open ground where they are vulnerable to predators.
How will this project solve this problem?
This green passageway will increase the existing rainforest and resolve the dilemma of animals trapped in the adjacent forest island by increasing the food supply and aiding the gene pool.
Potential Long Term Impact
Increase in wildlife mobility, raise the ecological awareness of the local community, absorb almost 30 metric tons of carbon yearly, and add 1.5 hectares of native, tropical forest habitat to our Earth.
