A Message From Our Editor

“Costa Rica is the most ecologically progressive country in the world having become a leader by example. Walking the talk . Costa Rica has achieved its leadership role by setting aside 23.4% of its geography  to preseves and national parks. Hands down the highest percentage in the world and making Costa Rica a conservation leader”
