Re-envisioning the Savegre Biosphere Reserve

ASANA hopes that 2014 proves to be the year that we successfully get Savegre declared a Biosphere Reserve.  Major tasks like this one – getting formal international recognition of the biological importance of an area such as the Savegre – are never easy to accomplish and require a lot of perseverance and patience.  But we are getting close and we appreciate your support as we continue our efforts.

 Here are some highlights of what is happening right now:

  • We coordinated overflights with CAVU to monitor the state of the watershed and get good aerial photographs of pristine areas and major threats to conservation.
  • We are redrafting the UNESCO proposal to declare Savegre a Biosphere Reserve.
  • We are developing various proposals to finance the final stages of getting the Savegre declared a Biosphere Reserve.
  • We have received generous donations of photos, videos, and satellite images to begin to put together a promotional video of the Savegre Biosphere Reserve and the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor.
  • We will be working with the Panthera Foundation to do a scientific study of various species of cats – including jaguar, puma, ocelot, jaguarondi, and margay – in the Savegre Watershed.
  • We are working with Park authorities and other governemnt agencies to include Manual Antonio National Park – Costa Rica’s most visited nation park – in the Savegre Watershed Biosphere Reserve. 

We're getting there... Somtimes more slowly that we would like, but like I said... "perseverance and patience"! Again, thanks for your continued support.
