A major part of conservation is involving the younger generations – because it is their future we are fighting to protect the most. As part of our work, we focus on education, not only for children but for communities and everyone who wants to be a part of conservation in Costa Rica. But when it comes to children, we know we can also learn a lot about their insights, their perspectives and encourage them to raise their voices and become active participants in the work we do.
The Killed-billed Toucan is one of the most iconic species of Costa Rica, its bright colored beak has become synonymous with visions of trekking in the rainforest. Adults are mostly black with a vibrant yellow-feather bib covering their throat and chest and a green ring around their eyes. Your eye however is drawn to the large brightly colored bill, a rainbow of colors: yellow, green, orange and blue with a red tip. Both sexes are similar in color, but the males are larger.
Otters are an animal like no ‘otter’. Long and slender, they mostly resemble their close relatives, weasels, and martens with some quite specific differences. Otters are generally elongated, with extremely flexible spines, allowing for the quick up and down motions needed for underwater locomotion. Neotropical river otters are sexually dimorphic with males being about 25% larger than females.
In Costa Rica, yellow-naped amazons are important because they’re the only mid-sized parrot on the Pacific side of the country. They’re also one of the most captured species for the wild animal trade. Yellow-naped parrots are recognized for their bright personalities, melodious voices, and willingness to imitate sounds, making them particularly attractive to poachers.
Parrots: You either love them or fear them. For a lot of people, there’s no real in-between. At least, that has been our experience seeing people volunteer and intern with us and having to learn how to work with and around these noisy, intelligent, and long-living animals.
