    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The National Commission on Wildfire (CONIFOR) estimated that May 15 will conclude the season of forest fires, which caused damage to a total of 1,175 hectares in protected areas so far this year.

    According to Luis Diego Román, coordinator for CONIFOR, there have been a total of 55 forest fires and 38 other protected areas on land outside conservation areas.

    Román said that compared with data obtained in 2013, a total of 4,017 hectares were affected, while in 2012 there was 4,160 hectares affected by fire .

    “There is less involvement based on what happened in previous seasons, are undoubtedly much less hectares so far, however, there may be a big fire, so you have to give a chance for the season to be finished,” Roman said.

    The statistics show that the Chorotegan region was the most affected by forest fires in protected areas, accounting for 53% of the cases reported to date, while the North Huétar region is the second most affected with 31% of incidents.
