Costa Rica is one of the world's top biodiversity hotspots. The key to the country's wildlife riches is its range of habitats, which is created by the spine of mountains running down its centre. This superbly illustrated book investigates the key habitats including rainforest, cloudforest and paramo, and showcases the diverse abundance of wildlife that they support."Wild Costa Rica" explores the country's outstanding network of protected areas, including flagship wildlife-watching locations such as Monteverde, Volcan Irazu and Tapanti. It features exciting and spectacular species such as the Scarlet Macaw, Resplendent Quetzal, Three-toed Sloth, Tapir, Margay and Spider and Howler Monkeys. No less impressive are the myriad smaller mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and plants.Illustrated throughout with more than 200 superb photographs, "Wild Costa Rica" is a celebration of, and a showcase for, the splendour and diversity of this small country's natural history. Written in an engaging, educational and thought-provoking style, it also describes the ongoing efforts to protect and nurture wildlife habitats and species.
