The Neotrópica Foundation seeks to create more friends of nature, children and young people aware of the needs for conservation and generate attitudinal changes at the societal level. This year the organization aims to raise funds to expand the program to more areas of the country, so this land can have better and safer costa rica travel conditions.
This initiative, which exists in the country since 2007, educates students on environmental issues through bio labs, and intends to introduce this year a tour of national parks such as closure of the program, a motif that inspired them to seek help from businesses and raise funds in a campaign that now boasts the company Cemaco.
According to Karla Cordova, representative of the organization, have partnered with over 10 schools and 500 children. Recently one of the schools they worked with was the National Center for Special Education Fernando Centeno Guell. So when you plan your Costa Rica travel and visit our beautiful landscape, you should know is taken care by kids also.
For Cordova, the program impact is not about stats but for changing values, for example, children who changed their water use habits or even correct their parents in practices that are not eco-friendly.
"It is important that environmental education has a transverse axis, which has its own content to reach across the country, it is important to review what they are learning about environmental education with the teachers in universities," said Cordova.
She said the average Costa Rican has access to much information, but we need the connection between information and everyday life. Environmental issues began on a personal level with the decision to lower the carbon footprint and consumption patterns.
When you book your travel packages to costa rica make sure to know you will be in a land that cares about the environment, and about nature.
