La Reserva Forest Reserve, Tilaran

5.0
#60 of 71 in Parks in Province of Guanacaste
La Reserva is dedicated to reversing the widespread conversion of tropical forest to farmland, recognizing that we are the “gardeners” of the Earth, not just exploiters and consumers. We call our work “oxygen farming” because forests produce oxygen and absorb CO2, thus helping to curb global warming. This is the symbiotic relationship we share with trees, they breath in CO2 and exhale oxygen, we inhale oxygen and exhale CO2, no to mention all of our technology’s CO2 emissions.

The critical importance of the LRFF lies not only in its reversal of deforestation but also in its ability to create a hospitable environment for species forced out by over 80 years of farming and 20 years of real estate development. In this premontane wet forest habitat on the Continental Divide, the forest regenerates in as little as eight years, allowing biological corridors to quickly link former isolated patches of forest. These corridors provide necessary habitat for resident species and welcome back species unseen in this area for generations. In addition, they offer opportunities for endangered species to thrive and migrate, thus enlarging the gene pool and reducing the dangers of inbreeding.
