Costa Rica is known for its biodiversity, as the concentration of species continues to increase in proximity to the equator. The concentration of habitats in the small country is also intense; gain access to these unique areas virtually with the help of an expert in Costa Rican life zones. See some of the fabulous birds and other critters whose evolution has been driven by tropical ecosystems, learn why such a small area can be home to so many species, and how maintenance of strong democratic principles has helped Costa Ricans double the forested area of the country in the past 30 years.
Presenter: David Moon, Environmental Educator, has taught tropical ecology in Costa Rica regularly since 1991, beginning with a Costa Rican non-profit, as well as ongoing classes for Franklin Pierce University.
