There is no other country on the planet that possess such an abundance of remaining wildlife. Costa Rica has more habitats and more species per square metre than anywhere else on Earth.
This talk will take you on a tour of the core habitats; from the coral reefs to the mountain tops of over 3,000m and all the transitional habitats in-between. It will also seek to answer the question: if Costa Rica can do it, why can't the rest of us?
This event has been organised by the South committee.
You will receive joining instructions for this event at 10.00am the day after making your booking, or 30 minutes prior to the event if you book on the day.
