Kayaks of the Coast: Mangrove Exploration
Explore the tropical mangroves of Costa Rica by kayak and learn aboout these precious ecosystems.
Costa Rica is known for having a huge diversity of spectacular wildlife as well as being a leader in the protection of its natural resources. The Rainforest Regeneration project takes place in the Osa Peninsula on the western coast of Costa Rica.
Rainforests form a network of animal territories, yet in some locations the forests have become isolated due to human development and resource depletion. This prevent creatures from completing their normal migration patterns and can become genetically isolated.
The Rainforest Corridor project allows your group to get hands on experience with the reforestation of biological corridors. Creating biological corridors is vital to allow movement between protected areas to help maintain the massive diversity of animals and plant life that can be found in Costa Rica. Tasks on the project are varied and range from planting young trees and vegetation to completing wildlife population surveys in areas which have previously been regenerated.
