Las Nubes is a project of the Faculty of Environmental Studies (FES) at York University (Toronto, Canada), and supported by the Fisher Fund for Neotropical Conservation. Las Nubes Project supports the protection of the biological, ecological and social values of the Las Nubes Biological Reserve and adjacent area in southern Costa Rica.
Working with our partners in Costa Rica (Universidad de Costa Rica, Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica), the Las Nubes Project has made significant achievements in research and conservation programs in biodiversity protection, rural sustainability, environmental education in local schools, and the use of Geographic Information Systems and remote sensing as decision-support tools for environmental management.
Since its creation in late 1990s, Las Nubes Project mission has been to contribute to community well-being in ways that are compatible and conducive to environmental conservation. Our work is based on three pillars: Education, Research and Community Engagement.
