Newton, the wildlife was there long before you and have more right to be there. If you don’t respect that and have issue with paying a little more to protect them from the impacts of human invasion, then perhaps you ought to consider moving elsewhere. That way, you won’t have to pay the higher rates.
We Costa Rica customers of ICE are already paying some of the highest electrical rates in the Western Hemisphere — higher than almost anywhere in the USA. Suggesting that they fix the electrocution problem and pay for it with a rate increase will not be well received and will not foster better feelings towards the “tree rats.”
Thank you so much for writing this very truthful article, the situation is heartbreaking and urgent. It is time for the Government of Costa Rica to enforce the laws that protect wildlife, maybe they could cut the enormous marketing budget for Tourism, and put some of the money towards saving the reasons Tourists want to visit Costa Rica, and increase the field staff of MINAE.
