The White Hawk Foundation

Luna Lodge has now joined together with a foundation to begin to protect the Carate River Valley; it is called the “White Hawk Foundation”.

The goal of this project is to purchase forested lands for protection of all of the wildlife and bio diversity in the Carate River Valley.

The goal is to create a protected corridor spanning from Corcovado National Park to Luna Lodge and continue to the southern end of the peninsula. Much of this land is bordering Corcovado National Park and it is a very important biological corridor we need to protect.

Join us in protecting the rainforest and the species that inhabit it, join us in impacting the world in a positive way.

The President of Costa Rica Visits Luna Lodge

In January of 2008, we were privileged to have the Costa Rican President, Oscar Arias Sanchez, as our guest.

I invited the President to stay at Luna Lodge because he had never before been to the Osa Peninsula. I wanted him to have the experience of physically being in the Osa Peninsula’s rainforest to really appreciate its value. He brought a delegation of friends and Costa Rican leaders with him including Costa Rica’s Minister of Environment, the director of the “Peace with Nature” coalition, and the president of the CR-USA foundation. Some very important conversations took place about the importance of preserving this last refuge of unspoiled wilderness and the President was able to enjoy some quality time here surrounded by the wonder of the rainforest.

The President’s visit was a huge success and it is our deepest hope that it will result in a definitive action plan to maintain and protect the serenity that is our Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica.
