Vinicio Zamora Chaves – Legal Advisor

I have known Steven Lill for many years. His interest in the conservation and protection of nature, create in him the idea of projecting this area, which infected me. Being a Lawyer with the same interests for Mother Nature, we decided to create a Foundation that had as its primary objective the protection and conservation of Corcovado National Park and other protected areas of our country, as well as raising awareness of this, to communities and visitors.

Thus, on February 6, 1992 – almost thirty years ago – we gave life to the “Corcovado-Lon Willing Ramsey Junior Foundation,” a name chosen by Steven, in honor of his great friend and who had a special sensitivity towards that beautiful national park.

“Since that date, I have had the honor to worked, hand in hand with Steven to achieve the conservation efforts we dreamed on.  Today, that dream is a reality. Thanks to the members, the collaborators, the volunteers, and the team that works for the foundation, this organization now has great achievements. I feel very proud to belong to this Institution.”
