The Reserve was created by the Rodriguez Cheever Foundation to fulfil a commitment to help preserve the Rain Forest and its diverse wildlife and plant life.

The benefactors of the Foundation are Luis Rodriguez and Sharon Cheever, husband and wife. Luis was born in Costa Rica and considers it his second home. Both Sharon and Luis felt the need to make a meaningful impact on wildlife conservation, after their first visit to Africa. With the biodiversity of Costa Rica, its environmental focus and Luis’ ties to Costa Rica they chose the Reserve and its Mission.

We are pleased to have Jose Zuniga our Administrator and his family oversee the operations of Terra.
