Cooperation agreement with Locos por el Bosque Private Reserve

Montserrat in Coronado, San Jose, is a Cloud Forest biological corridor located between the Braulio Carrillo and Irazu Volcano National Parks, 45 minutes away from San Jose downtown. Our Foundation is beginning to research and document species of importance in this place. We’re helping to keep this place as clean and untouched by humans as possible, so species like Jaguars, Pumas, wild hogs and coyotes can roam in their natural environment undisturbed. Any car can access this area but specially during the rainy season we recommend a high rise vehicle for the last 2 km of the road. Visit Locos por el Bosque on facebook for more information.

Carbon capture: trees for a better World

Rocaverde Foundation is aware of how plants and trees play a vital role on natural ecosystems, that’s why we host a mid-sized plant nursery, that includes native species such as Roble (quercus spp) and Aguacatillo (Persea caerulea). Most of sales for this activity end up supporting environmental projects in Costa Rica, and in the end aiding the World to become more clean and sustainable.

Environmental research

 
We have access to 12 Hectares of primary rainforest 50 minutes away from San Jose, Costa Rica, and we’re constantly looking for interesting, newfangled, avantgard research projects.
The main topics we try to explore are environment, endangered species, characterization of new species, other rainforest related topics.  We’re open to suggestions as long as they prove to be environment relevant.
At this time we’re recruiting scientists for our 2019 calendar. We are in capacity of hosting our research staff as well. If you believe your project might be worth developing, please fill out our contact form and write us why is your project important to the environment.

No more Single-use-plastics

This is how many tons of plastic we’re dumping to the Oceans

By 2050 there will more plastic than fish by weight in the oceans, unless we change our polluting habits. Also thousands, even millions of seabirds are killing their chicks by unintentionally feeding them plastic. The only creature on Earth that can put an end to this problem is us humans. Check out the video below to get an idea of what the problem with plastics is about.
You can help a lot. How about going the extra mile on plastic recycling? Please check out this video and spread the word. The World needs you on this effort.
