Costa Rica's Special Role (soon)
Costa Rica holds a truly unique position among the world's tropical nations with regard to conservation. This small country simultaneously is among the nations facing severe environmental threats and the nation that is perhaps most active in conservation efforts. In this chapter I briefly describe some of the major threats to Costa Rica's ecosystems, as well as the country's conservation programs and initiatives.
If you want to read about Eco-Tourism, Ecology, Behavior, Breeding and more of Costa Ricas' Fauna, we recommend to buy the Travelers' Wildlife Guide of Costa Rica by Les Beletzky (or Belesky) with beautiful illustrations by Davis Dennis. This priceless guide is our constant companion, when we travel around Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua.
