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. We will also seek to answer the question: if Costa Rica can do it, why can't the rest of us?
This event was organised by the South committee in collaboration with the Great Exhibition Road Festival, which brings together science and the arts from across South Kensington in a weekend festival and series of online events.
The Great Exhibition Road Festival is a free annual celebration of science and the arts in South Kensington with online events throughout the year. The festival is a collaboration between organisations on and around Exhibition Road.
