Costa Rica is proving critical habitats to some of the world's most endangered wildlife species. We know that over 25% of the country is covered with forest and jungle and provides protection to a wide-range of species whose habitat is fast disappearing from across the world. Even today we are still not understand many of these animals and time is running out for many of them. A gift to this project helps our projects around Costa Rica continue to run life changing research for the Jaguars.
Jaguars are a threatened species along with many other amazing wildlife that lives in the Costa Rican rainforest. Today we still are unaware of these animals and this is very dangerous as they are heading for extinction. It is important for this project to tackle this issue through two projects running simultaneously and that is why we support our team of researchers out daily collecting critical data as well as our education team working in the community to build awareness and engagement.
We have seen through research we better understand the critical nature of the habitat to turtles, jaguars and other species listed as endangered or critically vulnerable in the red list of IUCN. There is still much we don't understand so our research is becoming more critical to help protect and save all these incredible species. Alongside our research we work with our environmental education team that is committed to running outreach activities to engage the community in the issues we face.
Through research and education we can help promote these amazing animals to the locals and help them take ownership in ensuring they are protected. This will not only impact our environment but will also create local income through regular tourism to visit these animals.
