Help Tell The Stories of Dispossessed Landowners in Costa Rica

Environmental conservation is good, right? What if it dispossesses local landowners and alienates communities with a history of stewardship and ecosystems knowledge? This is happening all over the world, including in southern Caribbean Costa Rica. We want to document these communities' stories, both to preserve their cultural heritage and to inform better approaches to conservation policy.

You can help us make it happen! Support our Indiegogo campaign (until 11/24) and follow us on social media

If you'd like to participate or support this project, you can:
1. Donate money to our Indiegogo campaign until November 24
2. Follow along on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or our mailing list. Check out our website, www.therichcoastproject.org, and tell your friends about what we’re doing
3. Contact us. We are seeking partnerships that can help us maximize the potential impact of our work.
