Along Costa Rica’s once remote south Pacific coast, a crisis looms. The access to potable water, one of the most basic of human rights, is in jeopardy. Unplanned development has parceled coastal mountains and rainforest, unleashing a cycle of erosion and pollution that gravely threatens the Parque Nacional Marino Ballena, Latin America’s first marine park, and the region’s sustainable tourism-based economy. In this film, learn about one small community’s inspiring struggle to organize and fight to defend its access to clean, dependable drinking water. CAVU takes you high above, exposing the damage from the air, then back to land and sea, giving voice to local citizens, scientists and activists. Immediately after production, this film was screened in the community hall amidst a crowd of more than three hundred residents. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive, and marked the first step in an educational outreach campaign by The Nature Conservancy and CAVU to promote sustainable development in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula.
