Abstract

Costa Rica, which has the most advanced conservation agenda in Latin America, nevertheless is the scene of conflicts between farmers, miners and the government over access to protected forest lands. In 1985 over 800 gold miners were evicted from Corcovado Park in southwestern Costa Rica. Integration of forest management and tourism activities into the local economy is critical to the park's survival. - (DWG)
