Corcovado National Park continues to mesmerize people from all walks of life.
Friends and guests come back narrating stories of pumas, tapirs, and many birds of all kinds and sizes. In addition, the waters are populated with dolphins and whales, rays, and all types of ocean life. This is why Corcovado is one of the most sought places in Costa Rica.
With limited resources, the staff of Corcovado National Park struggles not only to protect the wildlife but also to greet and supervise visitors. This is where you came in. With your support, Community Park Rangers were able to work on Corcovado National Park for two weeks on one of the busiest days of the year. They greeted visitors, explained to them the area's fragility and the impact of inappropriate behavior, and kept an eye on visitors leaving the trails or harassing wildlife.
Additionally, the volunteers worked on painting signs and fixing trails during the afternoon. This work makes the visitation of tourists to the park more pleasant and safe. The Corcovado Community Rangers were trained by the Corcovado Foundation to be able to support the national park. They are volunteers whose passion for conservation, protected areas and nature is inspiring.
Corcovado cannot afford to pay for the food of volunteers who visit them. However, the lack of resources limits the number of people that can help. Corcovado could only afford this with your help. On the other hand, funds are being used to pay for food for fieldwork for the park rangers.
