Recently, Lapa Rios Ecoldge began to support a really interesting project called the Wild Cats Conservation Project. The Wild Cats Conservation project began in 2006 to determine the status of feline populations and their prey on the Osa Peninsula. This project uses cameras and video equipment to catch wild cats in action, allowing us to study theirbehavior and population densitiesin order to better protect and save these highly endangered species.
Lapa Rios Ecolodge is currently offering a tour through the rain forest with biologist Aida Bustamante that allows guests to install and review camera traps that will generate relevant photos and data important to the survival of these precious creatures.
