Preserving this 14 ha. primary tropical forest will save the Monge's who own it and maintain the forest habitat resident wildlife depend on in this vital forest corridor on the shores of Lake Arenal.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

What are your annual CO2 emission? Do you know? Mariano Monge has conserved this 14 has. rainforest for decades. He had 3 sons with his wife Alba. Josue, the eldest died a few years ago, the middle son was born with Downs syndrome and a serious heart defect and Alba passed away from terminal cancer in Jan. 2013. They've lived in San Luis all of their lives The San Luis forest is removing about 210 metric tons of CO2/year from the Earth's atmosphere. Offset your CO2 and help this family
