While tourists and locals alike love to witness the Titi Monkey, also known as, the Squirrel Monkey, few have the drive to take action to see to it that this endangered animal is well protected. Of those rare individuals willing to work on behalf of this beloved animal, there’s one group of local businessmen who have accomplished slews in protecting the Titi Monkey and bringing about sustainable development in Costa Rica, altogether.
Sustainable Development In Costa Rica: Meet The Titi Conservative Alliance
Preserving the Biodiversity of OUR Central Pacific through habitat reforestation and community empowerment.
Started in 2002 by a group of local business owners from Manuel Antonio and Quepos, mainly within the tourism sector, who recognized the need for conservation of their natural environment and sustainable development in Costa Rica to maintain prosperity for their businesses. Today, the Alliance is a local biodiversity conservation active leader and key advisor within Aguirre County. The Alliance’s work has been essential for the preservation of the Titi Monkey. For three years now, the Alliance’s conversation focus has been enlarged including community empowerment projects.
The Value Of TCA’s Cause:
1. TCA’s work is important for the international and national conservation community. The Alliance is helping to save the unique Titi monkey subspecies whose only habitat is Costa Rica’s Central Pacific area. Through sustainable development in Costa Rica, TCA is able to protect the endangered Titi monkey.
2. As a result of more than ten years of Titi Conservation Alliance’s work in the area, they hold the trust and support of the locals and maintain a great relationship with local businesses and public offices.
3. TCA works to make sure all of their work is sustainable. The organization leads and designs projects that empower the beneficiary community to ultimately become the responsible entity and manager of the project.
4. All TCA projects are aligned with the direction and carbon neutral strategy of the country.
