The Central American republic of Costa Rica is world renowned for its extraordinary biodiversity. Though only one third the size of Wisconsin, it has as many species of birds as the whole of the contiguous 48 states. Costa Rica is equally well known for its dedication to the conservation of its rich biotic resources, resulting in an unparalleled system of tropical national parks and preserves. Meeting during the spring semester to prepare for our trip, we will travel to Costa Rica for nine days in May, visiting the world famous La Selva Biological Station of the Organization for Tropical Studies, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, and Volcan Arenal, encountering lowland forest, montane forest, and cloud forest.
