Awesome work from ICE!
This year the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) has been especially supportive to the community and to KSTR's Wildlife Bridge Project. Recently they successfully carried out great work in different areas of Quepos and Manuel Antonio, to secure electric cables in the area and install wildlife bridges to promote a safe passage for wildlife and protect them. They changed 350 meters of bare cable to semi-insulated cable. They had the help of almost 80 electrical technicians and about 20 teams, including equipment like cranes, trucks and vehicles. In total more than 1 km of cable and all the mounts were changed in 10 posts. All of this is part of the actions that we had agreed upon together after multiple accidents we had reported of animals being needed to be rescued due to electrocutions. It is definitely an incredible achievement, and the community is very happy and grateful. More work like this is being done to change the bare cable for semi-insulated cable, in order to improve the quality of the electrical service and protection of the fauna and flora of the region.
KSTR Kids Camp!
KSTR organized a children's camp for the children of Manuel Antonio/Quepos to learn about wildlife and get involved in our project. Kids Saving the Rainforest was founded by two 9-year-old boys and it is very important that we continue our mission by teaching children about conservation and how they can make a difference for the future.
