Costa Rica, Linking Tourism & Conservation,

Year: 2012 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
Costa Rica represents a most remarkable model for the linking of tourism and conservation. Costa Rica enjoys 5% of the world's biological diversity on less than 1% of the world's land area. Rapid deforestation in the 1970s led to a bold decision to set a goal of protecting 25% of the country's land over 10 years. Today 126 protected areas makes up 31.5% of the national territory (26% public and 5.5% private).
