Episode Information

Costa Rica is a unique treasure on our planet.

Dry forests, rainforests, volcanoes, marine parks... So many abundant ecosystems, rich in extraordinary fauna and flora, which currently offer a real sanctuary to more than 5% of the world's biodiversity. Thanks to a proactive and innovative ecological policy, Costa Rica is now one of the few countries in the world, and the only one in America, to see significant year-on-year growth in forest cover!

Despite countless challenges, this small Central American country has become a world reference in environmental protection and the fight against global warming. Our series takes you on a three-step journey to the heart of a unique country - a discovery of several fabulous Eden-like biotopes, but also a record of the unprecedented efforts that scientists and ordinary citizens make every day to preserve, and in some cases restore, an exceptional natural heritage. A story of hope and optimism, at a time when the whole of humanity, in the midst of sudden climate change, is facing choices that will affect its future.
