Working with farmers for solutions:
Tuvimos el placer de participar en un conversatorio y charla con a Unidad de Atención de Conflictos con Felinos (UAC/fel), ganaderos afectados por depredaciones, y otros miembros de la comunidad. Esta unidad ofreció propuestas de solución, como son collares para el ganado con campanas y luces intermitentes, rotación de potreros, y otros. Además, junto con la organización Panthera, el SINAC y otras
organizaciones, se pudieron recaudar bastantes fondos para implementar estas acciones. En Cloudbridge y hoteles de la zona, se seguirán recaudando fondos para este fin.

We participated in a conversation with the Feline Conflict Attention Unit (UAC/fel), ranchers who have suffered depredations and other community members. The Unit offers various proposals, such as collars for the cattle with bells and intermittent lights, pasture rotation, etc. Together with Panthera, the National Park System and other organizations, there are funds available to implement these solutions. If you wish to donate to this initiative, please do so at
Cloudbridge or select hotels.🐾

HAPPY EARTH DAY! Cloudbridge continues to plant trees. We also have trees available for anyone in the community who would like to contribute to reforestation on your own property.

AN EARTH DAY SUGGESTION: CONSUME LESS! The staff and volunteers at Cloudbridge help with community recycling. We sort and bag all of the plastics, aluminum, tin and glass to be sent away for recycling. The problem now is that there are less places in the world that are accepting products to be recycled. We need a new solution. There seems to be a simple one - Be aware of the products you buy and the packaging used. Bottled water seems to be a no brainer. Also how much we buy. Have a happy Earth Day weekend!

One exciting thing that happened this month took place at a local establishment where we go for brunch on Sunday mornings. Jardines Secretos (Secret Gardens) was using plastic to wrap their utensils in when serving customers. This seems to be a regulation for restaurants in Costa Rica. The knives and forks are always put on the table in a plastic sleeve for health reasons. After breakfast one Sunday we asked them about this and Bernan the owner agreed that is is a bad practice but that it is a regulation. The next Sunday when we arrived for brunch they set the table with the utensils all nestled in newly sewn cloth sleeves made by Bernan's wife Shirley. This kind of packaging can be used over and over again as they are washable. What a nice surprise! The family who own Jardines Secretos took it upon themselves to make this little change and we are so proud of them. Pura Vida.
