Álvaro Ugalde Scholarship & The Campaign for Corcovado

The Álvaro Ugalde Scholarship & The Campaign for Corcovado

The late Álvaro Ugalde, founder of the National Park Service in Costa Rica, was a pioneer in the field of conservation and an inspiration to all who knew him.

Osa Conservation, with the support of the blue moon fund, has created two funds to honor the memory of Alvaro and to continue his life’s work.

The Campaign for Corcovado

This fund will be directed to the Costa Rican government to support its efforts to remove illegal gold miners and poachers from Corcovado National Park. Osa Conservation will work closely with national and regional government entities to determine how funds are best directed in the effort to maintain the integrity of the park.
