Tirimbina works with a conservation model that consists of three hubs that complement each other: scientific research, environmental education and ecotourism. Research helps obtain scientific information that can be used in conservation strategies. Education allows us to raise awareness and involve the community in the forest protection, and ecotourism generates the funds needed to support these projects, as well as international promotion.

The reserve is registered with the National System of Conservation Areas of Costa Rica as a Private National Wildlife Refuge. To qualify as a protected area, Tirimbina has implemented a management plan that includes guidelines and policies for the responsible administration of the reserve. In addition to this, Tirimbina is also a member of other local and national conservation initiatives, such as the San Juan La Selva Biological Corridor, and the Costa Rican Network of Natural Reserves. The reserve is also an active participant of the Blue Flag Ecological program, specifically in the categories of Protected Natural Areas and Micro basins, as well as the payment for environmental services program.
