ASANA- ASANA’s main objective is to connect all the fragments of forest between Terraba and Savegre Rivers, thus creating a natural corridor of protected lands which will have no interruptions and along which wildlife of all kinds can travel freely without the pressure of human depredation. The project is well advanced and is know locally and internationally as “Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor” It was officially recognized as the only portion of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor that extends to the Pacific side of Central American Isthmus. That distinction has brought the Path of the Tapir Biological Corridor considerable notoriety.
