It is the biggest private reserve in Costa Rica and it is part of the Water and Peace Biosphere (“Biosfera Agua y Paz”) from the UNESCO, founding member of the Costa Rican Network of Private Reserves, and also member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
Its mission is to maintain, preserve and rehabilitate the Topical Ecosystems and its Biodiversity, through environmental educational activities, reforestation, investigation, protection and monitoring, as well as a sustainable ecotourism (trails, presentations, hikes, and biological stations).
It is located in the Tilarán Mountain range and it has more than 22.000 hectare of primary and secondary forest, as well as regenerating areas.
This Reserve has been preserved thanks to the effort of many children and adults, together with schools and other organizations in more than forty countries around the world.
