Cor­co­v­ado Costa Rica

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Our Wild World -

Cov­er­ing al­most half of the Osa Penin­sula in the south of Costa Rica, Cor­co­v­ado en­com­passes the only orig­i­nal trop­i­cal rain­for­est on the Pa­cific coast of Cen­tral Amer­ica. Es­tab­lished in 1975, its var­ied for­est types, coastal wa­ters, rivers and la­goons host around half of the coun­try’s an­i­mal species. Fa­mously, it's been dubbed ‘the most bi­o­log­i­cally in­tense place on Earth’.
