Costa Rica : the Sea, the Last Challenge

So far Costa Rica has been focusing on the conservation of its land surface. But nowadays the biggest challenge is the country’s maritime area – ten times larger than its land surface with only a minute protected portion. Attracted by Costa Rica’s mild temperatures thousands of species – humpback whales, hammerhead sharks, sea turtles – come here to mate and give birth. But their journeys to reach the coast have become more and more dangerous.
