I'm in. Now I know where I'm vacationing! And of course once I've got my place set up here in Ecuador, you boys are welcome to visit.

BTW - The third picture down in the monkeys in trouble is actually a highly endangered and little-studied semi-aquatic cat species called a Jaguarundi, which is something I've been trying to help protect further South in Ecuador.

The cost of retiring in Central America is actually very expensive. You might consider a location with more natural resources, a stronger economy, and a smaller, more educated population -- for example, New Zealand.

josh, i think it is a very bold move you are making. i wish i could do it. the only thing i can say is that poachers are not very nice people. and i wish you the very best and my prayers go out to yall. and i agree....find the poachers, dont kick their ass.... put them in the ground. a protected species is something that needs to be taken care of by all not just a few. lmk if i can help in anyway. when are yall going? send me a pm. sam

Wow that's pretty ambitious. A few years back I looked into moving to New Zealand and found it to be quite expensive as so many rich people are buying up real estate there. It also appears the locals are getting annoyed with people buying the land that they can now only dream of.

Like MsKitty said, these poachers are very dangerous so watch your back if you get involved in this.

Best of luck to you if you decide to go for it!

In this statement, I was not referring to the price of real estate. But certainly one member of CRFG just bought nice farmland there for $1k (US) per acre.

Well, as a Canadian in South America, I've found it to be less expensive all around. Not sure about the Central American countries, but it's possible that they're more costly.

Down the block to the gas station. In the countryside, every other town has a station.

What is expensive about it? My wife and I have considered the idea even though retirement is about 25 years away.

This forum is not the United States of America so you don't have freedom of speech here. If the moderators want a particular type of posting on this site, well, they have that right.

I didn't say anything negative about you, I am just saying that the moderators have the right to screen threads and take out what they think is inappropriate. Maybe you should PM them and see whats going on.

I think what you are doing is wonderful. I just found what I would guess is their official website: Tigre Salvaje a wildlife preserve in Panama

In regards to the photo(s) that were removed, anything thats too graphic and/or elicits horrible memories for our members will be considered for removal. And thats what happened here. In the next few minutes, I will place up a rules page and detail that and many of (the rest of) the other rules of the site. If we're to protect the animals, we're going to protect the people too

It was nice chatting with you on the phone about the project and I do wish you the very best. I have family in Panama and I know life there can be wonderful. The big city would only be a few hours away. The skyline is amazing, check this out:





A lot of development has been going on in recent years, so an initiative like Tigre Salvaje is very important in these times. Keep us posted!
