Puerto Viejo Rundown

September 11, 2012

The ARA Project is a nonprofit conservation organization based out of Alajuela, which has a release site in Manzanillo for endangered Great Green Macaws. This is the world’s first group reintroduction of the Great Green Macaw species, and they are flying free in our very own Caribe Sur.

ARA also has two release sites of the Scarlet Macaw on the Pacific Coast. If you’re interested in contributing to this project, visit the breeding center in Alajuela for a tour, make a direct donation on the website, volunteer at the breeding center or even “adopt” a macaw or two. For more info, visit www.thearaproject.org or facebook.com/thearaproject.org or email info@thearaproject.org.

Don’t forget! ArteViva and La Danza de la Luna are coming up the weekend of Sept. 28-30. These are two wonderful, annual events that take place in the South Caribbean.

Check out www.arteviva-puertoviejo.com for more info on the arts and culture festival. For more complete information, forms, meeting information and requirements on the moon dance or to reserve your spot, email danzadelalunacr@yahoo.es.
