Conservation Association of Flora & Fauna (APREFLOFAS)

Version en Espa�ol

The Conservation Association of Flora & Fauna (APREFLOFAS) is a private non-political organization, and truly non-profit, founded in 1985 to fight for conservation of our tropical forests. We are members of FECON, the most important network of Costa Rican ecologists, and of IUCN (the World Conservation Union).

Our main projects are centered around deforestation and illegal plant-trafficking, illegal hunting of wild animals, contamination of our rivers and our rescue program and relocation of birds, monkeys, reptiles and other native species. These activities are carried out by our Volunteer Park Guards, who constitute the foundation of our organization. Sadly, we have many necessities which limit our work. That is why we want to build up a great group of friends at a global level who are interested in supporting our activities. Join our organization which truly works in the field and not in the office. With your help we can accomplish wonderful things, just try it!

Cordially, The Mapache (The Raccoon)

Contact us and we will send you information about how you can help save our tropical wild species to:
