Rainforest Conservation

& Ecotourism in Costa Rica


Jheudy Carballo

Those attending our "Dinner With An Expert" presentation on February 21, 2012 leaned how early exploitation of the natural resources of Costa Rica has been reversed. Now, with emphasis on the conservation of the highly diverse flora and fauna, for use in ecotourism, Costa Rica has become a major destination for those interested in the biological and earth sciences.

Ecotourism dollars have helped promote conservation of endangered species, and scientific research, while wise use of the Costa Rican environment has expanded job opportunities all over the country, and led to a thriving democracy with improving social conditions.

Mr. Carballo, proved an informative, interesting, and fun guide to the ecological success story that is Costa Rica.
