Project Report | Jan 17, 2024
KSTR-Thank you for making a difference!

By Carmen Soto | Partnership Director

Hello!
 

We hope you are doing great!
 

We wanted to give you updates on some of our most recent projects related to our wildlife bridge program that we have been able to do because of your awesome support.
 

You are a valuable part of the team and support of Kids Saving the Rainforest conservation projects, for which we are immensely grateful. It makes us very happy to share these success stories with you!

 

Every month maintence and installment of new wildlife ridges is done. However here is some of our most recent work with our willdife bridge project, that was done in collaboration with The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE):

 

Important work done on Electrical Wires!

On september of last year ICE did very important work towards protecting the safety of the wildlife in Manuel Antonio from suffering electrocutions. The main electrical wiring of main streets were changed  to a special cable that improves protection against breakdowns and protects the fauna and vegetation of the place. There were many technicians and ICE personnel working on site with trucks and cranes. The work that was carried out is extremely important, as it corresponds to an investment ICE is making 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.

 

Maintenance and Installment of Wildlife Bridges!

On december of 2023, maintenance work was done on public roads, where vegetation was dangerously near electical wires, so it was trimmed. Also old wildlife bridges were changed to new ones and 4 new bridges were installed in very touristy areas where hotels and restaurants are located.

 

Have you ever seen traffic on a Wildlife Bridge?

Seems wildlife in Manuel Antonio love the wildlife bridges and are thankful for them. On a wildlife bridge installed by KSTR, 2 adult two toed sloths and a kinkajou were seen at the same time using the bridge. They had to patiently wait to move along on it. The crowd around them got to see something pretty peculiar!

 

Please consider your support with contributions in the near future. It will be of amazing help to improve our efforts to protect the country's biodiversity.

 

We look forward to having you join forces and help make a difference, protecting Costa Rica's wildlife and environment!
