As we approach the Christmas holiday and year end festivities, we would like to sincerely thank everyone who supported The Titi Conservation Alliance Annual Online Auction in November. We were so fortunate to have many generous donors and buyers this year and truly appreciate the support. Proceeds from this year’s auction will be earmarked to strengthen our Environmental Education program that has provided free environmental education to 4th and 5th graders in our area since 2003.

Introduction to the tree planting program
Introduction to the tree planting program

Titi Conservation Alliance held its annual Member Tree Planting on October 27 on the Gamboa family farm located in Naranjito. Employees from Hotel Parador, Hotel Kamuk, Hotel La Mariposa and Banco Promerica joined schoolchildren from the Escuela de Londres and supporters of the ASADA of Londres (Local Water Association) in planting a mini corridor to connect two patches of forest on the farm. After an introduction by Ing Juan Pablo Aguero, our forestry engineer, the tree planting was underway. Once the work was done everyone enjoyed a delicious lunch of Arroz con Pollo served up by the wonderful staff of Los Delfines Restaurant. Why not take a quick ride out to Naranjito, have lunch at the restaurant and go see the newly planted trees? Special thanks to the Gamboa family for joining the growing group of landowners who want to improve the habitat for our Titi monkeys and other wildlife in the area.

Happy Holidays to all and we will see you next year!
