It’s never too late to make a difference

We still need more ambassadors to support the rehabilitation of the biological corridor on 29,000 m2 of the banks of the Torres River.

Once the necessary funds have been collected, volunteer campaigns will be carried out involving the local community in the preparation of the land, planting and maintenance, led by a team of biologists, forestry engineers and landscaping specialists.

Thank you for being part of this commitment! Invite your friends, family, colleagues and business to join and rehabilitate the habitat of more than 107 species of fauna that exist in the area: 10 species of amphibians (frogs, toads), 16 species of reptiles (Basilisks, iguanas, snakes), 65 species of birds (hawks, tanagers, motmots, and more) and 16 species of mammals (bats, , three and two-toed sloths, common opossums, coatis, porcupines, coyotes, raccoons and more).

La época seca en Costa Rica comienza a mediados de diciembre y termina en mayo, el momento ideal para iniciar el manejo y eliminación de especies exóticas que inhiben el crecimiento de las especies nativas en las orillas del río Torres.

En mayo, cuando comienza la época de lluvias, se plantarían más de 680 individuos de 49 especies nativas endémicas unas y otras en peligro de extinción, lo que aumentará la diversidad de los servicios ecosistémicos, el hábitat y la conectividad biológica para cientos de poblaciones silvestres que viven en medio de este bosque en la ciudad. Entre las especies inventariadas, se han registrado 10 especies de anfibios (ranas, sapos), 16 especies de reptiles (basiliscos, garrobos, serpientes), 65 especies de aves (halcones, tangaras, momotos y más) y 16 especies de mamíferos (murciélagos, perezosos de tres y dos dedos, zarigüeyas comunes, pizotes, puercoespines, coyotes, mapaches y más)
