Costa Rica has a great number of organizations working to protect its forests and national parks and we need your help.

The good news is that Costa Rica is one of the few countries in the world whose forests are expanding every year, and in some areas, wild animals are making a recovery. Costa Rica has, by percentage, one of the largest areas of wild lands dedicated to national parks. And areas like the Osa Peninsula have very strong networks of people dedicated to protecting the area from development.

Anyone who knows other organizations dedicated to protecting Costa Rica’s animals should email us and we’ll add their link or contact info.
