Finca Salvaje, is 1 mile from the famous Los Cusingos, near the city of San Isidro del General, where naturalist Alexander Skutch observed and wrote about the birds of Costa Rica. Forests have been fragmented for agriculture and all of those bird species that Dr. Skutch wrote about are disappearing due to loss of habitat. The corridor, through old pasture, will restore the native forest connecting the Rio Caliente and the Rio Calientillo. Let’s bring em back, they are waiting in the shadows!
Install fencing to protect the corridor from cattle, plant 12,000 native trees, 2 years of tree maintenance, pay the landowner yearly payments for environmental services and perform quarterly inspections for the first 5 years.
Connecting the two riverside forests will increase wildlife mobility assisting biodiversity, raise ecological awareness in the community, absorb approx. 600 tons of CO2 from our atmosphere yearly & add 12 hectares of native, tropical forest habitat.
