Las Nubes is in a prime location for the creation of a corridor between the lowlands around Los Cusingos and the highlands of Chirripo National Park and La Amistad Biosphere Reserve. Protecting this corridor would enhance the restoration of original habitat and promote more sustainable land use, thereby allowing for the dispersal of animal and plant species.
Canadians share a global responsibility to protect the world’s biodiversity and to reduce global warming. Conservation of Las Nubes will provide opportunity to fulfill this obligation. Las Nubes will also provide a training ground for a new generation of Canadian ecologists, conservationists and international development specialists. As well, Canadian medical researchers can play a large role in finding cures for worldwide diseases in undiscovered chemical compounds of tropical biota in Las Nubes.
Each year, students from the field course in sustainability and applied ecology, help in the reforestation efforts along the corridor.
