Territorio de Zaguates
The Land of Stray Dogs, or Territorio de Zaguates in Costa Rica is considered one of the best places on the planet for a dog to live. This sprawling refuge allows all of its 900 citizens to range free during the day. They are given fresh flowing water intermittently over the whole property and are given a bed in a sheltered structure where volunteers go to feed and bathe the dogs.

This free range sanctuary explores how a free range environment improves health and adoptability. It is a no kill shelter. Each dog is given a name and a unique breed name of their own (for their egos, lol). If you wish to adopt you can schedule a walking hike on their property, and if any of them choose you, you will be allowed to adopt them.

Costa Rica’s waste management is improving with more recycling programs. Cities are now using yellow containers to collect plastic bottles, newspapers, aluminum cans and paper cartons. Recicle Escazú is the oldest recycling program in the country.

Biodiversity News
October 2010 – The US announced today that it was writing off $30 million of Costa Rica’s debt. In exchange, Costa Rica will create a host of new protected areas, increase the management of its existing ones and create a series of protected corridors between them so that species can move freely. $17 million has already been pledged to Costa Rica by private donors. A spokesperson for the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the international treaty that administers UN biodiversity programmes, was “hopeful” that a further $3 million would be committed during the conference, meaning Costa Rica could receive $50 million in new donations.
