Tirimbina Biological Reserve
Tirimbina is a private wildlife refuge managed as a non-profit organization by the Tirimbina Rainforest Center. Its purpose is to conserve the Costa Rican rainforest in Sarapiquí, educate people about the environment, and provide scientific research.
Tirimbina Biological Reserve protects 345 hectares of mid-elevation forest (pre-montane) and its 9 kilometers of trails pass through several ecosystems of the forest and river. Only a third of the Tirimbina forest is used for ecotourism and environmental education, leaving the majority of the Reserve intact.
Nowadays conservationists and researchers from around the world use Tirimbina to study important relationships among species.
Biology education is one of the primary tools that the Tirimbina Rainforest Center uses to promote conservation. For this reason we have designed educational activities for our visitors so they may enjoy the forest and learn to interpret its interactions in an active way.

The great biodiversity present in the Reserve and the diversity of the surrounding landscape (agriculture, forests of different sizes, close proximity to the Braulio Carrillo National Park, etc), make TBR an important research location in Costa Rica.
