Costa Rica’s jungles, beaches and cloud forests offer beauty and sustenance to people and other living creatures. Scientists come from all over the world to learn more about the plants and animals found in this small country’s rich ecosystems. Costa Rica promotes itself as an ecologically progressive country, and many of its laws and practices set an example for other countries. In EcoChronicle, student journalists explore the challenges and contradictions of keeping “pura vida” pura.
