Thank you for your support to Corcovado

The Ministry of Environment has always struggled to maintain its protection efforts. The lack of resources to hire park rangers and pay for basic needs like fuel and equipment has always haunted this government agency.

Costa Rica’s second source of income is tourism, and with the Pandemic hitting the traveling industry, Costa Rica’s economy was severely devastated.  Besides, to face the health challenges, the government allocated emergency resources to hospitals and public care, reducing other agencies’ budgets, including the Ministry of Environment.

Mori, the Corcovado National Park administrator, told us that “After the Pandemic, financing the operations for Corcovado National Park has been challenging, since there were cuts to the budgets of all protected areas.   Therefore, the support of donors through GlobalGiving is essential to continue with our conservation efforts.”

Park rangers work in very inadequate conditions. Your support gives us the possibility of meeting some of the basic needs to continue to do the critical job that they do. While we are celebrating Christmas and the holidays many of these everyday heroes will be working on their posts, protecting wildlife, and stopping poachers. They deserve better and you are helping them to do their job and being taken care of as they care for our natural resources! 

Thanks to your donations, we were able to improve a little bit of their living and working conditions:

• We purchased the materials to provide bathrooms sinks in La Leona sector in Corcovado National Park.  This allowed us to provide the service needed for visitors to the PNC.

• We purchased the materials to change all the electrical wiring in the San Pedrillo sector.  Since this station is so close to the sea, the salinity damages all the cables quickly.  Thanks to your donation, we changed the pipes, cables, panels, and others so that the park rangers could have lighting in areas of the ranger house that were damaged, such as the kitchen, dining room, bathrooms, and bedrooms.

• We purchased materials to repair the water pump in the Los Planes sector.  In this sector, the water catchment system had been failing, the pump was repaired, and some pipes were changed so that the park rangers had water at the ranger station.

On behalf of the team at Corcovado National Park and our organization, thank you so much for caring!
