Connect to 25 min. online video. -- (Source: Films on Demand)
Home to more biodiversity than either Europe or North America, Costa Rica has shown the world how to benefit from the environment without destroying it. This program treks across the Central American nation with a spotlight on ecotourism and how it fits into Costa Rica’s overall economy. Visits to a banana farm, a coffee plantation, the Monteverde Cloud Forest, and the Tortugero National Park demonstrate a healthy give-and-take relationship between human society and the land.
