COSTA RICA'S ENVIRONMENTAL EXCEPTIONALISM
Costa Rica's Natural Energy Resources
According to the country’s National Center for Energy Control, Costa Rica has been running on more than 98 percent renewable energy since 2014.
Jane Goodall's Thoughts
"Costa Rica is an inspiration to us all. They are restoring their forests, protecting their biodiversity, and creating a sustainable future for their people."
Costa Rica is home to more than 500,000 species, which represents nearly 5% of the total species estimated worldwide, making it one of the 20 countries with the highest biodiversity in the world.
ABOUT THE DOC
In the 1980s Costa Rica was on the verge of losing its forests and biodiversity and was on its way toward 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. However, over the last few decades Costa Rica restored its forests while providing employment and financial security for its people. How they did 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.
