In the 1980s Costa Rica was on the verge of losing its forests and biodiversity and becoming just another country in a long list that has had its natural resources and wealth ripped out and sold off without seeing tangible benefits for the country itself. It is a familiar story. But this is not the story of Costa Rica. Over the last few decades Costa Rica saved restored its forests while providing employment and financial security for its people. It is a story that can inspire the world and show a path to both protecting the ecological wealth and diversity of a nation while providing much needed income and employment. This is the story of how they did it.
