ASANA (Friends of Nature, Central and Southern Pacific Coast) Costa Rica

The mission of ASANA is to secure the long-term conservation of the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor and surrounding natural areas by empowering local communities and residents to take action in support of conservation actions. In particular, we support the development of local community organizations, cooperation among government and non-governmental organizations, and environmental education. We serve as a local coordinator of research activities, and we act as advocate when required to address high-priority needs.

Check out the wildlife!

So, you can’t come to the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor and the Savegre River Watershed to check out all the fantastic wildlife?  Well, we’ll just have to bring it to you!  Check out the video link associated with this newsletter to get a pretty good sense of what’s out there. All that’s missing are tapirs but I shared with you a photo of one near the Rafiki Safari Lodge, in the Savegre Watershed, in the last newsletter I sent out. And a while back I shared a photo of a black jaguar, photographed at the top of the Savegre.  You don’t have to speak Spanish to enjoy the video. Most of it is of wildlife, caught by the camera “traps” (hidden cameras triggered by motion detectors), set to music.

The video is part of a major wildlife monitoring initiative supported by ASANA and the Path of the Tapir Local Council.  Our goal is to document wildlife abundance and distribution throughout the biological corridor and Savegre region. I never, ever get tired of watching these video.  It makes me appreciate even more all the hard work that so many local people put in to ensure that wildlife returns and thrives in our beautiful part of the world.   

And it is truly astonishing how quickly the wildlife is returning, thanks in large part to the work of local organizations like ASANA and the local council that overseas all conservation work.  Even on my family’s property, only a mile or so from the main highway that hugs the Pacific Coast, we’ve captured photos and video of all the animals you see in the accompanying video – plus, puma, forest deer, monkeys, and more.  Every year, as the forest continues to regenerate, we see more and more wildlife and the number of new species increases as well. 

So, enjoy the video, and thanks for your continued support of ASANA, the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor, and the Savegre River Watershed!
