Stretching for nearly 125 miles between Nicaragua and Panama, Costa Rica’s majestic Caribbean coastline is a tropical wilderness. More rugged and less touristy than the adjacent Pacific Coast, the jungle-lined beaches and interior host an exotic array of wildlife, from howler monkeys dangling in the trees to massive iguanas crossing the road.
Unfortunately, the wonderful wildlife of Costa Rica faces threats from every angle as developers, global warming, and poachers attempt to diminish the nation’s rich biodiversity. To achieve our purpose, meet the people working to protect some of the nation’s most vulnerable species and join in their conservation efforts through education and wildlife sanctuary visits and a beach cleanup.
