Escrito por: Pablo Porras Editado por: Florencia Franzini Conservación Osa’s Santuario para el Cotinga de Pico Amarillo (Carpodectes antoniae) es un lugar especial que nacio de la inspiración de un proyecto de monitoreo y seguimiento que duro dos anos. Tras el duro trabajo realizado por compañeros de investigación, la única lógica que parecía seguir era que nosotros fuéramos a crear un bastión para este ave endémica - Hoy este pequeño reducto es el lugar donde se conducen los estudios de CO a la población local de esta ave en peligro...

Written by: Pablo Porras Edited by: Florencia Franzini Osa Conservation’s Yellow-Billed Cotinga (Carpodectes antoniae) Sactuary is a special place born from the inspiration of a two-year monitoring and tracking program. After the hard work performed by fellow researchers, the only logical process that seemed to follow was for us to create a stronghold for this struggling, endemic bird – Today this little stronghold is the place where OC studies the local population of this endangered bird.

Inspiration comes in many shapes and forms - the medium from which we craft our thoughts and feelings, too, are many. On his last visit to the Osa Peninsula Neil Deupree wrote this lovely poem in his journals, and he has so graciously decided to share  it with everyone so we too can experience a bit of the inspiration the Osa Peninsula has to offer. Thank you, Neil. *** OSA PENINSULA Sitting on the front porch at Piro The surf is distant thunder  - be sure to pack the poncho. The cicadas are way more than white noise in the background.

[caption id="attachment_6447" align="alignleft" width="300"] "Many termine species have soldiers with enlarged heads that have sharp, defensive mandibles. Worker termines, by comparison, have smaller heads with chewing mouthparts. The Mexican burrowing toad (Rhinophrynus doralis) feeds almost entirely on termines. It spends most of its life underground, emerging only to breed after heavy rains."[/caption] "They are creatures of interiors. Social but reclusive, all but a few shun the light of day, avoiding even the moonlight. They live underground, in logs or sealed nests, and conduct their social lives within dark labyrinths often...
