Conservation and Environment in Costa Rica: Monthly Updates
Monthly Updates from 2011
With the year coming to an end so quickly we are all sitting back and looking at what we have accomplished in 2011 and I think Barra Honda can honestly have its collective conscience wiped clean because we have accomplished A LOT!
As we get closer to the end of the year we start moving our focus and attention to 2012, the investigation projects, large maintenance work and what we are going to change in regards to how we work.
October is always a very interesting month in Costa Rica; there are several festivals and national holidays and it gives everyone the chance to learn or participate in celebrating the diversity of Costa Rica.
The last couple of months have been the busiest on record here in Barra Honda, we have had more people, more work, more projects and more people arriving and leaving than ever! This has been exciting and very entertaining!
We have been working hard as usual in Barra Honda this month and we have been having a great time doing it as well! This month has been one of the wettest on record, which you can see on the weather data section from our website. This shows that from the middle of May it has rained almost every day!
Mirador - Everyone who visits the Barra Honda National Park gets the chance to visit the Terciopelo Cave and also the Mirador Platform, one of the only points in the area where you can see an amazing 180 degree view of the landscape.
February has been so busy that by the time I sat down to write to you all I realised it was the middle of March! So we have combined the two months to give you a full information packed update this time round!
I was recently looking over the reports that I've written in the past and noticed January 2010, which was a good month for us, the start of the best year we've had, a good amount of interesting projects, some good fun maintenance work and a good group of volunteers.
