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.
