ARCAE’s Mission

The Costa Rican Conservation Network’s blog was established in 2009 as a way to promote natural resource conservation efforts in this country.  In 2011 it became the official blog of ARCAE—the Costa Rican Environmental and Educational Network.

ARCAE is a non government, not-for-profit, civil association, registered as such under the Costa Rican Public Register (#3-002-640214) on July 13, 2011.

The organization’s MISSION is to improve the quality of life for Costa Rica’s rural, coastal residents through environmental conservation, sustainable economic development opportunities, and by bridging the gap that exists between urban and rural educational systems.

If you would like more information on the association’s work, including ways you can participate and support it, please click on the “Volunteer Opportunities” page or contact Andy Bystrom at

      Yes, sadly I’ve been slacking off on my blog. I have trouble balancing work, thesis research, and the blog. One always looses out and lately it’s been the blog. I did manage to post something today though (that means I slacked off at work!! But I guess they’re all one and the same). You’re welcome to repost any of my entries as long as you credit me and link back to the Costa Rican Conservation Network’s blog. Thanks from the comment Scott.
