Welcome to Three-wattled Bellbird Conservation and Reforestation Efforts

Change the World Kids do it again. These amazing kids spent a week planting trees and working in the nurseries at La Calandria, the Monteverde Institute, and Guacial Center for Sustainability. The trees were planted on farms, nature reserves and extended from 1500m in elevation all the way to the Gulf of Nicoya (with the Bellbird Biological Corridor collaborator Costa de Pajaros). To top it off, they donated $10,000 for reforestation and habitat protection. Thank you, Change the World Kids, and all of the donors to the project.


The need for habitat restoration on the Pacific slope of Costa Rica was identified as critical for the survival of the Three-wattled Bellbird (Procnias tricarunculatus). The Costa Rican Conservation Foundation protects, connects, and restores tropical habitats through direct purchases of critical habitats, wildlife refuge creation, conservation easements, landowner cooperative agreements and assistance, habitat restoration, and environmental education. The Foundation operates a native tree species reforestation project for the reforestation of Pacific slope habitat. The Costa Rican Conservation Foundation is one of six founders of the Bellbird Biological Corridor and collaborates with several organizations to achieve the goals of providing more adequate habitat for many species of tropical flora and fauna.
