An agreement for implementing the Forest Conservation Program was signed
24 from July from 2012
Besides improving the conditions of the different Conservation Areas and National Parks, they will invest resources in high-technology equipment to prevent forest fires
 
By: Melissa Solis C.

The government of Japan and several national entities, like the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) and the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Telecommunications, signed an agreement for the implementation of the Forest Conservation Program through the National System of Conservation Areas.

Japan donated $9 million for the protection of National Parks and Wildlife Protected Areas.

Besides improving the conditions of the different Conservation Areas and National Parks, they will invest resources in high-technology equipment to prevent forest fires.

For Juan Carlos Borbon, General Manager of the ICT, this important agreement had a strong participation and commitment by the institution, which allows strengthening the actions to guarantee the protection of these protected areas. These areas represent one of the main attractions for the tourists who visit Costa Rica, and protect the natural heritage for future generations.

One of the main projects is to improve the services and trails of the Manuel Antonio National Park, and built the Education Center for Conservation in the same park.

Several resources will be destined for the San Lucas Island Wildlife Refuge. There will be investments in infrastructure like: building the Information and Environmental Education Center for the Conservation of the Refuge, restoration and improvement of the access paths, building of trails and house of the park rangers, and purchasing batteries for the restrooms and treatment plant in the Management Complex in the Refuge, among others.
