Habitat-Friendly Farming and Landscaping

At Paso Pacifico, in addition to working with donors, government entities, and other NGOs, we also work with private landowners to foster cooperation and habitat-friendly farming and planting and land-use practices.

Especially when working with home and hotel developers, we strongly encourage the use of native flora. We believe a healthy native plant population is one of the keys to saving many birds and other species from extinction.

We understand the desire to plant a bunch of palm trees and colorful euphorbia, instead of the pretty, drought tolerate natives, but one of the most important things to remember is that though we are in the tropics, we are in a tropical DRY forest zone.
