The Victory Garden
Costa Rica: Eco-Tourism/Rainforest (#2606)
Garden correspondent Holly Shimizu meets with David Clark when she tours La Selva, a biological preserve and research facility. She learns that his research tracks how the tropical rainforests respond to climate changes. Together they tour areas of the preserve to demonstrate the breadth of bio-diversity in these forests. Later, Holly meets with Jean Pierre Knockaert, director of Centro Neotropico Sarapiquis, a non-profit model for eco-tourism, which enables people to enjoy the glorious natural surroundings while respecting the fragile relationship man has with the rainforest. Holly learns about the village that dates back to the pre-Columbian era and explores the area to find out about the endangered ecosystem preservation efforts. [26 minutes]
