The National System of Conservation Areas, or SINAC, has established a working alliance with Humane Society International/Latin America through the signing cooperation agreement for wildlife management and conservation programs in Costa Rica.

Andrea Borel, executive director for HSI/Latin America, said: “This partnership marks an important animal welfare milestone. By establishing a working relationship with SINAC, we will strengthen the protection of wildlife in Costa Rica.”
The conservation and management of wild fauna is a global matter with growing importance in developing countries, where the government institutions and non-governmental organizations play an important role to establish improvements on wildlife issues. With this alliance, HSI/Latin America and SINAC will look to strengthen wildlife legislation and combat illegal wildlife trafficking. This agreement also includes support for outreach and awareness campaigns on wildlife conservation in Costa Rica and the provision of technical assistance for specific wildlife issues, like the development of standards for dealing with wildlife in urban settings, among others.

Support our campaign to end wildlife abuses around the world.

“It is very important to strengthen the wildlife management and conservation that is the heritage of all Costa Rican citizens. The signature for the first time of this agreement with Humane Society International to endorse and promote the work performed by SINAC will guarantee the protection and welfare of wildlife in the country”, says M.Sc. Mario Coto, executive director of SINAC.
