Costa Rica has established an extensive network of national parks, covering around 1/4 of all the land in the nation.  By doing so, the entire ecosystem within these parks is preserved -- ensuring that the diverse species found in these areas and the intricate connections between them are not destroyed.



CAC is a program of the Institute for the Study of Human-Animal Relations at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY.
