Development in Costa Rica has led to numerous remnant forests, where wildlife is trapped. LRFF will plant 2500 native trees on open pasture creating a green passageway between two forest islands.
These isolated remnants of forest force the animals to use any means necessary to seek out needed food and potential mates. Monkeys and sloths in particular currently use barbed wires which cause deadly mutilations, electric cables which lead to electrocutions, and the open ground where they are vulnerable to predators. The green passageway will resolve the dilemma of animals trapped in this forest island, increase their food supply and improve the gene pool to further population growth.
Install fencing using living posts to protect the passageway from cattle, plant 2500 native trees, maintain for 2 years, pay the landowner yearly payments for environmental services and perform quarterly inspections for the first 5 years.
Increase in wildlife mobility, raise the ecological awareness of the local community, absorb 650 metric tons of carbon yearly, and add 2.5 hectares of native tropical forest habitat.
