Costa Rica

Conservation pioneer, champion of the environment

Costa Rica is an environmental conservation leader and has shown the world that it’s possible to thrive without damaging the environment. That is one reason The Nature Conservancy has worked from the outset to support national efforts to safeguard the country’s forests, and why it chose Costa Rica as the site of its first international operation, where it continues to work tirelessly to this day.
