The Project is governed by five central objectives:
For such means, Chiquita has destined part of its banana plantation area in Costa Rica for the creation of the Private Wildlife Refuge Nogal. This Refuge spans over more than 100 hectares of tropical rain forest along the banks of the Sucio River, in the county of Puerto Viejo in Sarapiqui, province of Heredia. It is home to a diverse array of plant and wildlife species, both resident and migratory and its importance as the home of various wildlife species, both resident and migratory. The Refuge gained official recognition from the Ministry for Environment, Energy and Telecommunications (MINAET) in 2006.
The doors of the Project are always open for other groups interested in getting involved and participating in the efforts, from the local communities to the schools, students and scientists, Costa Rican authorities, Chiquita employees and all of those who wish to work for nature towards sustainable development. This support is of vital importance, since without it we cannot truly achieve the conservation of our environment and the promotion of the nearby communities’ sustainable development.
