SILVA, Ana Margarita  and  CARRILLO, Norma Natalia. El manglar de Purruja, Golfito, Costa Rica: un modelo para su manejo. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2004, vol.52, suppl.2, pp.195-201. ISSN 0034-7744.

The Purruja mangrove (Golfito, Costa Rica) has an estimated area of 70 ha. A socio-biological research was the ground to set initial goals to manage the resources and to identify the mangrove biological condition. Community participation and the local organization were key factors in developing an integrated model for the management of natural resources. Constant monitoring and institutional networks were the other two factors to manage the mangrove. The constant profesional support was a tool to facilitate the acomplishment of goals and to establish an institucional network to promote local group iniciatives for collaborative management of the Purruja mangrove
