Our dream is to establish a Center that will house all our current programs
and serve as an inspiration for sustainable living through wildlife conservation,
research, community engagement and immersive educational experiences.
The Center will bring the local, expat and tourist communities and initiatives together
to protect the environment and improve the quality of life in the area.
The construction and initial operating costs for the Center will be generated
by a capital campaign to be undertaken during 2020.
At present, the Campaign is seeking major, lead donors interested in putting their stamp on the initiative.
Donations are tax-deductible in Costa Rica, the United States, and Canada through our fiscal sponsorships
Located at the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge, the Center's facilities themselves will demonstrate cutting-edge sustainable design, construction and operation to visitors and the community.
A national competition will be organized in Costa Rica to determine
the design of the buildings and landscape.
Visitor Information Center
Staging area for tours
Theater (150 person capacity)
Gift shop, coffee shop and juice bar
Fundraising will determine whether or at which pace we procceed.
The Center will generate revenue to cover the cost of operations and programs through the following means:
Sales of tours
Gift shop, cafe, and juice bar
Food and lodging
Rental of facilities
Sponsorship and cross-promotional partnerships
Admission to educational exhibits, activities and events
Project and research grants
Our business plan predicts considerable revenue within the first five years of operation based on only a small percentage of visitors to the area attending and not considering all potential sources of revenue.
