Las Nubes Project was created by Dr. Howard Daugherty from the Faculty of Environmental Studies, after a generous donation made by noted Toronto physician Dr. Woody Fisher to York University in 1998.

The Fisher Fund for Neotropical Conservation, created in honor Dr. Woody Fisher, supports the protection of the biological and ecological values of the Las Nubes Rainforest and adjacent area in southern Costa Rica.
