We are grateful for the support we have received from the mayor’s office at Alcaldia San Juan del Sur
specifically from Vice Mayor Randall Granja. Randall oversees the
environmental department of the municipality and has helped facilitate
our relationship with a range of government entities. San Juan del Sur
is the municipality that covers the western portion of the Paso del
Istmo Biological Corridor.
vice-mayor takes the time to learn about the biodiversity issues
affecting his city and its territory. He also is very receptive and
frequently receives Paso Pacifico staff at his office to learn about our
conservation programs. Recently, he and his staff effectively responded
to illegal hunting of monkeys in the area. Through careful planning and
promotion, he and his staff also demonstrate that they are keenly aware
of the importance of the local ecosystems to tourism.
alliance we have forged with the local government greatly enables us to
protect important wildlife species, empower local community members,
and build the Paso del Istmo Biological Corridor.
Thank you Randall and the municipal government for your environmental commitment and leadership.
