Nosara Talks: The Value of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge
Vanessa Bezy, PhD
May 31, 2018
Wanderlust Realty was happy to host Vanessa Bezy for her discussion about what “sustainable” means and the challenges Nosara faces to promote sustainability in the current tourism and development boom. She used sea turtles as an example of the value of protecting nature and wildlife to the local community and economy. She also covered broader environmental, social, and economic aspects but focused on identifying concrete ways that community members can make a difference in their day-to-day lifestyle to minimize their impact on local wildlife and promote sustainable practices in Nosara.
