Park rangers getting motorcycles

The national bankers association has donated five motorcycles for park rangers.

The Asociación Bancaria Costarricense said the donations would be coordinated by Costa Rica por Siempre and Pro Parques, which would place the vehicles in Parque Nacional Santa Rosa, Parque Nacional Volcán Tenorio, Parque Nacional Carara,  Parque Nacional Barbilla and the Reserva Biológica Hitoy Cerere.

National parks are plagued with illegal hunting and illegal lumbering. The motorcycles will allow more aggressive patrolling in areas that are not open to four-wheel vehicles.
