Costa Rica declares its 28th biodiversity conservation parkby Stacey
Are you looking for reasons to learn Spanish in Costa Rica? Here's one…Last year, the United States forgave Costa Rica's debt of $26 million, much rather preferring the country to use the money towards its rainforest preservation and biodiversity conservation over the course of 16 years. And Costa Rica is doing just that.
According to its politics as a pioneer Latin American country in environmental protection, the Costa Rican government declared the Quetzales region as its 28th National Park under environmental protection. The goal is to expand the protection of 0.1% of the planet, which encompasses 3% of the earth's biodiversity and species.
Costa Rica has more than 160 parks and conservation areas, covering more than 25% of the entire country. An impressive amount of protected land includes all 28 National Parks. Inland you can enjoy rich wetlands, lagoons, forests, hills and volcanoes. Costa Rica is home to such near-extinct (and protected) species such as the Jaguar and the great green Macaw.
