LOCAL INITIATIVES in DOS BRAZOS

Since its founding in 2004, ACODOBRARTI, the local non profit conservation association of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre, has been dedicated to supporting initiatives that seek to protect local wildlife populations and conserve their natural habitats. Due to Dos Brazos' history as a gold mining community, much of ACODOBRARTI's work in this regard has focused  on establishing the necessary mechanisms and capacity to achieve sustainable economic growth through local conservation and the creation of alternative, environmentally-friendly sources of employment.

To learn more about current conservation efforts in the community, please take a look at the below sections!

 

A special thank you to our generous program partners & donors!

We would like to thank our many collaborators who continue to champion our local conservation efforts and help foster economic change through the development of sustainable"green" jobs in our community.  It is because of your great generosity that we are able to continue to advance our mission to help safeguard and protect the local ecosystems here on the Osa Peninsula.  We greatly appreciate your partnership and support!

Thank you!

Biological Monitoring

In 2016, ACODOBRARTI partnered with local non-profit Osa Birds to implement a community-based biological monitoring program with funding awarded through the US Fish & Wildlife Service's Wildlife Without Borders - Central America fund. Through this program, Dos Brazos guides received extensive training to conduct monthly monitoring and data collection activities along defined monitoring transects within the community for specific indicator and priority species in the region. Indicator species are defined as those sensitive to environmental changes, while priority species are those of reduced populations and of high local and global conservation concern.

Monthly monitoring includes data collection on:

Mammals (Mamíferos)

Birds (Aves)

Plants (Plantas)

Local guides continue to collect data on a monthly basis to build upon baseline inventory collected in 2016 in an effort to enhance scientific knowledge of the conservation status of these target species of flora and fauna and ultimately create mechanisms to execute future conservation actions in the region.

Native Plant Nursery

In conjunction with the community’s biological monitoring program, ACODOBRARTI in partnership with local non-profit Osa Birds and with funding awarded through the US Fish & Wildlife Service’s Wildlife Without Borders – Central America Fund constructed a community native plant nursery in 2016 to further the community’s initiative to establish the mechanisms and capacity for sustainable economic growth and local conservation realized through the creation of community-based green jobs.  The native plant nursery, or “Vivero Tigre” as it is named, germinates native species of trees endemic to the Osa Peninsula for sale to commercial and private properties to support widespread efforts throughout the region to protect and improve the populations of local fauna. 

We have Volunteers Program, included lodging & 3 meals,in local family houses, $35p/p per night, contact us corcovadoeltigre@gmail.com

Community Botanical Garden

As an extension of the native plant nursery program, in 2018 ACODOBRARTI started an initiative to improve the local landscape in an effort to support community beautification as well as restore local wildlife habitats. To this end, ACODOBRARTI is working to develop a community botanical garden to improve food sources for local wildlife populations by transplanting trees from the native plant nursery to mapped public locations, local hiking trails, and biological monitoring transects. 

We have Volunteers Program, included lodging & 3 meals,in local family houses, $35p/p per night, contact us corcovadoeltigre@gmail.com 

 

Local Reforestation

In addition to the community botanical garden project, in 2018 ACODOBRARTI is looking to advance local reforestation on the Peninsula by germinating trees in the community native plant nursery to be utilized to reforest various conservation areas and help restore the land to better serve the endemic ecosystems of the region.  While target reforestation areas have already been identified within the community, the team is looking to also develop strategic alliances with other local non-profits and government organizations to define long-term reforestation goals and implement an action plan for specified priority locations within the National Park and protected reserve system.
