Getting a handle on dams and transmission towers

As we finalize preparation of the final proposal for the Savegre River Watershed Biosphere Reserve, we've been asked to document the impacts of the hydro dams and high tension transmissions lines and towers that have been planned by the Costa Rican Government for the Savegre River Watershed. We have been fortunate to get some volunteer assistance from a semi-local organization CAVU (www., which provides over-flights in key conservation areas as a monitoring tool.  CAVU will be photographing the construction site of one of three dams that are to be built on the Savegre. In addition, CAVU has generously offered to photograph a critical part of the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor – a very narrow portion currently under threat of dense development.  For jaguar and tapir to be able to move between the Corcovado National Park and the Talamanca Mountain range – through the Corridor and Savegre Watershed – we must protect this critical habitat.   

To all of you who have contributed to our Savegre campaign – a huge thanks. And if you wish to check out our new GlobalGiving website that supports the general operations of ASANA, please go to .

Un abrazo!
