    By - Richard Margoluis - Vice-President
    ASANA continues to plug along and do the best it can with the limited resources it has to help conserve the Savegre River Watershed.   The main focus of our efforts over the past few months has been to secure significant funding through local institutional donors here in Costa Rica.  This, ironically, has...

    Re-envisioning the Savegre Biosphere Reserve
    By - Richard Margoluis - Vice-President
    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...

    Building Constituency in the Savegre
    By - Richard Margoluis - President, ASANA
    We've had a lot of movement related to our Savegre Watershed work during this past reporting period.  Most of it revolves around organizing more and more support for the concept of a Biosphere Reserve.  Perhaps the biggest news is the Municipal Council of Aguirre (Quepos/Manuel Antonio) asked us to come give them...

    Mobilizing Local Support
    By - Richard Margoluis - President, ASANA
    Our work in the Savegre River Watershed continues at a steady pace.  We have had to spend more time building local support across a broad spectrum of stakeholders since our last submission of a proposal for Biosphere Reserve status with UNESCO was put on hold. This has come about primarily because we lacked one vote on...

      jan dwire Thanks for the update Richard. The Savegre is such a beautiful river and deserves to be protected. ASANA's efforts are very much appreciated by me and all of the critters that drink at the water's edge. Well Done!
