This year in Costa Rica we have had the La Niña rather than El Niño. La Niña equals = much rain. We’ve been buried in rain this year. So much that the Lopez family is unable to enter or leave their property via vehicle.
After posting this project on Global Giving many people called wanting to go on the great El Farallon petroglyph tour and see the covered cliff face for them selves. One tour company from the capital city of San Jose was interested in transporting tourists to El Farallon. Big surprise! The first people to attempt it became stuck in the mud on the last kilometer of road before the Lopez’s entrance.
One of the Lopez brothers has been working here at La Reserva on Project Hometree. One day he inquired about progress on the El Farallon project. We have received $110.00 on this project and still need $4,292.00. With funding we can preserve 48 hectares of primary dry forest habitat and help this family.
Please consider helping out on this project. The family continues to be isolated and in dire straits financially. Imagine, with the payments for environmental services each year for the beautiful life-giving forests they are conserving it would be possible for them to fix their road to receive and inspire tourists.There is $100,000 in matching funds, but the percentage matched is based on a graduated scale. The more a you give, the higher the matching percentage and they're matching up to $2,500 per donor! This is a great opportunity to stretch your donation dollars even farther and to help implement this much needed project. Please give now and help this dream become a reality.
