ASANA hopes that 2014 proves to be the year that we successfully get Savegre declared a Biosphere Reserve. Major tasks like this one – getting formal international recognition of the biological importance of an area such as the Savegre – are never easy to accomplish and require a lot of perseverance and patience. But we are getting close and we appreciate your support as we continue our efforts.
Here are some highlights of what is happening right now:
We coordinated overflights with CAVU to monitor the state of the watershed and get good aerial photographs of pristine areas and major threats to conservation.
We are redrafting the UNESCO proposal to declare Savegre a Biosphere Reserve.
We are developing various proposals to finance the final stages of getting the Savegre declared a Biosphere Reserve.
We have received generous donations of photos, videos, and satellite images to begin to put together a promotional video of the Savegre Biosphere Reserve and the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor.
We will be working with the Panthera Foundation to do a scientific study of various species of cats – including jaguar, puma, ocelot, jaguarondi, and margay – in the Savegre Watershed.
We are working with Park authorities and other governemnt agencies to include Manual Antonio National Park – Costa Rica’s most visited nation park – in the Savegre Watershed Biosphere Reserve.
We're getting there... Somtimes more slowly that we would like, but like I said... "perseverance and patience"! Again, thanks for your continued support.
