As Congress turns their attention away from Mr. Obama's environmental economic initiatives toward healthcare, one small business remains committed to the initiatives' ideals and jump starts their mission toward environmental sustainability this fall. Villas Tranquilas, a Costa Rica Vacation Rental in Quepos/Manuel Antonio, joins a growing group of Central Pacific businesses and Costa Rica Hotels dedicated to sustainable Costa Rican Tourism.
Spearheaded in 2001 by local business owners to protect the endangered Mono Titi (squirrel) monkey, the Titi Conservation Alliance focuses conservation efforts on the Rio Naranjo Biological Corridor surrounding internationally famous Manuel Antonio National Park. The Rio Naranjo Biological Corridor's two known locations for Mono Titi monkeys are separated by development making it extremely difficult for populations to thrive.
Villas Tranquilas sponsorship of the Titi Conservation Alliance gives tourists searching for Costa Rica vacations special insight into such local conservation issues. By educating tourists on local sustainable causes, it raises awareness about Costa Rica's fragile Manuel Antonio National Park ecosystem and, by extension, the endangered Mono Titi Monkey.
Partnering with local Titi Alliance members, Villas Tranquilas strengthens a commitment to support business-to-business partnerships but also publicly recognizes their own charter to achieve sustainable development status through Costa Rica's Certification of Sustainability. Villas Tranquilas begins the process of certification this fall with Titi Conservation Alliance guidance.
Through Villas Tranquilas guest donations, a portion of all proceeds will go directly to local education, reforestation, and conservation projects that impact the Manuel Antonio and Quepos Communities. Titi Conservation also offers opportunities for local businesses to help with reforestation of the Rio Naranjo Biological Corridor thus, off-setting carbon emissions and reducing each business's carbon footprint.
