RECENT $22,000 GRANT to MCLUS FROM U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE

About two hundred species of neotropical migrant birds from Central America fly each summer to the United States to nest and raise their young. In late summer they fly thousands of miles back to their tropical homes. We share these wonderful songbirds, many of which spend more than half of the year in the Children’s Eternal Rainforest. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is interested in protecting both of their habitats in the U.S. and in the tropics. In a collaboration with other conservation organizations in the Monteverde Zone, the Monteverde Conservation League U.S. has been awarded a $22,000 3/1 matching grant by USFWS to continue to buy deforested land and replant it, providing restoration of needed habitat.
