“About half of the plants and animals found on the Earth live in tropical rainforests.”
Rainforests are some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. They’re home to thousands of plants and animals. They have plants that can reduce carbon dioxide, cure diseases, and water that makes its way all over the world to help prevent droughts. I was fortunate enough to travel to Costa Rica where I visited the Cabo Blanco rainforest, located on the extreme southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. The reserve was created in 1963 and was part of the first major conservation project in the country. It’s great to see that a small country like Costa Rica recognizes these benefits and take action to protect these increasingly threatened ecosystems.
