map-1

“Costa Rica is famous for being one of the most biologically rich spots in the world. Though it occupies less than 0.01 percent of the planet’s landmass, the tiny nation is home to 5 percent of all species. And the country has pursued an aggressive agenda to protect this diversity. The government has set aside 26 percent of its land for conservation, which means it is closing in on an important milestone under its treaty obligations in the 1993 U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity.” – Nature Magazine
