STOP THE SHOCKS

INEFFECTIVE WILDLIFE PROTECTION LAWS

There are laws in Costa Rica that should protect the environment, biodiversity, habitat, and wildlife, but they are either ineffective or not properly enforced.

UNINSULATED POWER DISTRIBUTION

Even with the danger to arboreal wildlife, new electrical cables and transformers are installed without protection.

HABITAT DESTRUCTION

With many areas of Costa Rica experiencing a surge in unregulated development, deforestation forces wildlife to use dangerous electrical cables to cross between fragmented habitat.

WILDLIFE INSTINCTS

Wild animals do not know the difference between safe, natural vines and dangerous power cables. They cannot sense the danger until it's too late.

PROTECT COSTA RICAN WILDLIFE
HELP PREVENT WILDLIFE ELECTROCUTIONS
 Unfortunately, most of Costa Rica’s power distribution system consists of uninsulated power lines and transformers which cause deadly electrocutions of wildlife. International Animal Rescue Costa Rica has created the STOP THE SHOCKS program to aid in the prevention of wildlife electrocutions due to encroachment of power lines in wildlife habitats. Learn more about how you can help prevent wildlife electrocutions.
WHY ARE POWER LINES KILLING WILDLIFE?
In a country that prides itself on sustainable energy and eco-friendly practices, you might be surprised to learn that wildlife is electrocuted.
El programa STOP THE SHOCKS de International Animal Rescue Costa Rica está dedicado a proteger la vida silvestre de las electrocuciones. Se requieren los siguientes métodos para prevenir electrocuciones mortales combinando:

TREE TRIMMING
In order to prevent wildlife from accessing the power lines, tree branches near electrical distribution must be cut.

ROPE BRIDGES
In areas of deforestation, rope bridges are installed to provide safe aerial pathways for arboreal wildlife to travel between habitats.

AYÚDANOS A DETENER LOS CHOQUES

Las electrocuciones se pueden detener. Con generosas donaciones del público, International Animal Rescue Costa Rica puede apuntar a áreas de alto riesgo mediante la compra de equipos de protección de vida silvestre y puentes de cuerda. Done para STOP THE SHOCKS y patrocine el aislamiento de un punto caliente de electrocución cerca de usted, o si está edificio incluya esto en su presupuesto. El costo de aislar un transformador es de 1000 a 3000 dólares.Contacte a IAR Costa Rica.
