What we do ?

The Black Headed Bushmaster Conservation Project is a program held by

CRWILD and the Bushmaster Conservation Project.

This effort constitutes an important step towards 

understanding and protecting this rare and enigmatic species in its natural habitat,

the Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica.

Only a group of passionate naturalists could develop such a project, devoted to protect and study their favorite snake genus: Lachesis.

This project is based in the middle of the primary rainforests

of the Península de Osa, Costa Rica.
