    During the weekend of the 28th and 29th of May, you can help EPS plant trees along the Savegre river near the beach town of Dominical as part of a charity event. The proceeds from the event will fund EPS’s Central Pacific Habitat Restoration Project and the El Silencio Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center. The project has received funding to plant 45,000 trees in the Central Pacific Coast Conservation Zone (ACOPAC). The aim is to establish an area of uninterrupted forest from Manuel Antonio National Park, south along the Playa el Rey National Forest Area and then northeast along the south bank of the Savegre river.

    It is vitally important to have a proper facility available for animals that are rescued from illegal captivity and illegal poachers here on the central pacific coast. This is the only one we have,” says Carlos Vinicio Cordero, the Director of ACOPAC.

    While the funding received is sufficient to plant the trees, it does not provide for removal of alien species or maintenance of the trees once they have been planted. Therefore, proceeds from the event will go into a transparent fund. The El Silencio Wildlife Rescue Center is in desperate need of funding and is under threat of closure.
