The Karen Mogensen Reserve is part of the biological corridor of the Nicoya peninsula, thanks to the regeneration of the forest that took place through the purchases of land made by the ecological association of Paquera, Lepanto and Cóbano from the beginning. A part of these lands was acquired with Italian public funds and private donations thanks to GEV Modena – Foreste per Sempre ODV. All this allowed to restore the natural ecosystem, which has since recovered its biodiversity.

The conservation and increase of the Dona Karen Mogensen Reserve area and the recognition of Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre are the primary objectives.
