Did you know that the rainforests of Costa Rica are so-called biodiversity hotspots? Rainforests in general are home to 50% of all plant species, 55% of all clear water fish species, and 77% of all vertebrates we have found on our planet. Yet rainforests, which are biodiversity hotspots, make up only 1.4% of the earth’s surface.
Our reforestation area borders existing biodiversity corridors which leads to an expansion of habitable areas for plants and animals alike.
The Almendro (Almond) tree is a good example of how our forest provides for its inhabitants. The fruits serve as a valuable food source for several animal species and the branches function as nesting spots for rare birds such as the Ara Ambiguus. We are very proud of the fact that our trees have allowed these rare birds, among others, to return and resettle on our Fincas.
