Today, the Naso are forced to leave their land to seek out jobs in urban areas. Multiple hydroelectric projects, permitted by the Panamanian government, are threatening the Naso communities and destroying the natural resources on their land.
Furthermore, the Naso still do not have “comarca”, which is the reservation status for their land.
La Amistad Biosphere Reserve is a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. It contains Central America's largest intact tropical rain forest rich in flora and fauna.
