In the south of Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula lies the Corcovado National Park, which protects one of the last lowland rainforests in the world on 42,469 hectares. National Geographic describes it as a place with the highest biological intensity in the world. Only 80 km away begins the Amistad National Park, the largest national park in Costa Rica. Naturefund, together with the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin and the Fundación de Universidad de Golfito, would like to set up a green climate bridge between the two national parks and thereby significantly promote the exchange of species. In a first major step we want to plant 100,000 trees. Please help us to do so! more
Whether sloth, toucan, frog or parrot: they all feel at home in Costa Rica's rainforests. Although the country is relatively small with an area of just under 51,000 km², it is home to more than 500,000 recorded species! Over 220 different mammals, about 100 bats, more than 860 bird species and numerous amphibians and reptiles cavort in the rainforest. Even endangered species such as the leatherback turtle or the jaguar can be discovered in Costa Rica.
