Costa Rica and natural resource protection:

Costa Rica has been a well-known pioneer for dedication to protecting natural resources, whether it be in declaring areas as national parks, in caring for water sources, protecting species by making hunting illegal, or in creating animal crossings throughout the country. Fun fact: did you know that 30% of the country’s land is protected? Starting back in 1955 with the establishment of two national parks, the very first areas of protection were created: Parque Nacional Turrialba & Parque Nacional Volcán Irazú.
