Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

June 19, 2009

This weekend, the Manuel Antonio-based Titi Conservation Alliance will be participating in Rainforest Aid 2009 to help raise funds for OsaPeninsula conservation.

As a co-sponsor of the three-day music festival, the alliance will share information with event participants about the importance of its work in Manuel Antonio for the critically endangered mono tití, or squirrel monkey. By displaying examples and information about monkey bridges with help from Kids Saving the Rainforest, conducting educational presentations with alliance forestry engineers and maintaining a booth on the festival grounds, Titi Conservation Alliance hopes to both help support its neighbors on the Osa and share the importance of conservation for all areas.

Gaia Hotel and Reserve is now featuring live piano music to enjoy with tapas or dinner. Check out Gaia’s piano maestro, Mathias Aspelin, at www.mathiasaspelin.com. The hotel will start offering Sunday brunch in the next couple of weeks, also featuring piano music by Mathias.
