The Asociacion Pro Bienestar Animal, known as McKee Jacó, has counted handfuls of dead animals each day in the area around Parque Nacional Carara. The dead include birds and other creatures in just one kilometer of the highway, the animal welfare organization said.
Consequently the organization prevailed on Los Suenos Marriott and Casinos Fiesta to sponsor signs that have been erected on the highway between Refugio Punta Mala and Esterillos Oeste.
The “I break for Animals” signs in Spanish on the Costanera at least give a reminder to motorists. McKee is seeking more sponsors of signs.
