    [TCRN] – Often new visitors are shocked to see such wildlife outside of the Costa Rica rainforest, but living with the wildlife is just part of living in one of the world’s most Eco-rich environments.

    After a study reported that 50% of electrical faulty were cause by animals, monkeys, opossums squirrels, iguanas…etc., the University of Costa Rica (UCR), Pilar Campos, and Coopeguanacaste Environmental Management, teamed up to come up with innovative solution to solve the problems.

    They included the construction of “monkey bridges” made of mesh and ropes, the establishment of parallel ropes between trees and power lines, as well as line transformers, all of these as prototypes for not limiting the natural movements of the species and preventing electrocutions.

    More work will be needed in the study animal movement habits, and routes, as well as longer term solutions that may include policy on infrastructure projects.

    Costa Rica has only .03% of the earth’s surface, yet contains 5% of earth’s biodiversity- making Costa Rica one of the world most bio-regions in the world.

    Animals and humans constantly interact here in Costa Rica, its landmass is so small and so rich in flora and fauna, interaction is inevitable.

    Thanks to innovative program such as the ‘monkey bridges”, keep Costa Rica as one of the best places in the world for eco-living.
