Introduction to the El Tigre South-South Project

El Tigre Sustainable Community Video
The El Tigre community in the rainforest of Costa Rica is located above the Pacuare River Gorge. This documentary video is about El Tigre, a model of sustainable community development. Thanks to the leadership of Rios Tropicales, El Tigre received a grant in late 2008 from Fundecooperacion as part of the South-South Project, an international collaboration between Costa Rica and The Kingdom of Bhutan.
