open in viewer

The sediment transport and deposition in the Mala Noche River and Estuary in Sámara, Costa Rica are the major causes of large-scale mangrove die-offs in the mangrove forest and depletion of valuable fish stocks of Sámara Bay. The goal of our project was to raise awareness and educate the community of Sámara about local environmental issues. We developed an environmental education program for the second and sixth grades of Escuela El Torito and designed and distributed a brochure to the community. In addition, we designed the blog, "Salvando el Río Mala Noche," for use by Escuela El Torito as an online teaching tool and resource.
