The Maderas Rainforest Conservancy was established to promote the conservation, protection, and management of Mesoamerican forests and animal and plant biodiversity through education, reforestation, preservation, and by working with local communities, national & international institutions, colleges and universities.
The conservancy is the combination of two field sites, La Suerte Biological Field Station in Costa Rica and Ometepe Biological Field Station in Nicaragua. They have been at the forefront of the conservation since the early 1990s. Increases in real estate sales, irresponsible tourism, live animal capture for the pet trade, and agricultural deforestation have left the species and ecosystems of the Mesomerican forests extremely vulnerable. The MRC exists to combat these growing concerns.
