SPONSOR A PIECE OF PARADISE



FAQs

Save the forest

A, B and C, the areas around the springs, are being developed first.

 

Why should you want to help?


Did you know that in Latin America we are losing trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute? Trees along with endangered species are disappearing. Soil and water are being polluted, this causes biodiversity to migrate and become more vulnerable. You can make the difference.

How can you help planet earth?

 

Many people who are concerned about the environment and want to do their part to help protect our planet, have no idea how they can go about doing this. Sponsoring a portion of Finca Don Raúl Nature Reserve may be the answer. The reserve encompasses many acres with a tremendous diversity of plants and forests that provide refuge to a large variety of birds, animals and endangered species. Your financial support will help conserve the ecological balance of the ecosystems on this special reserve. 

What makes the reserve’s location special?

 

Finca Don Raúl is situated in the buffering zone of La Amistad International Park, which is the first binational biosphere reserve, located in both Costa Rica and Panama, and a UNESCO world heritage site. Just two years ago a new species of frog was discovered (Cruziohyla sylviae or Sylvia’s tree frog) as well as a snake (Talamancan pit viper) that was previously unknown. Hundreds of animals, including jaguars and other big cats, traverse between the national park and the reserve.
