Biological corridors are masses of vegetation that allow the flow of genes and species between ecosystems that have been fragmented. It’s function is to ensure connectivity through the maintenance of the areas with conserved vegetation that still exist, and the recovery of the vegetation that has been lost. These spaces full of life have the ultimate goal of maintaining and restoring the biodiversity and it’s ecological evolutive processes.
Santuario Macao is found in the central West of the Biological Corridar Paso de las Lapas (CBPL) in the Conservation Area of the Central Pacific in West Costa Rica. CBLP in conjunction with Carara National Park, La Cangreja National Park, Castro Cervanties Wild Life Reserve, Protective Zone of Cerros Turrubares, Santuario Macao and other protected areas of similar private character are working in reestablishing the connectivity of these protected areas within their limits, placing the scarlet macaw as the umbrella species of the corridor.
