A century ago, more than three quarters of Costa Rica was covered with forest. By the 1980s, uncontrolled logging had reduced this to just one quarter. The government decided to act, offering grants to land owners to replant native trees.

In just 25 years, the forest has returned to cover half of Costa Rica once again. Just imagine if we achieve this of the carbon emissions that have been pumped into the atmosphere by our activities to date. With all these things, there is one overriding principle. Nature is our biggest ally and our greatest inspiration. We just have to do what nature has always done. It worked out the secret of life long ago.

In this world, a species can only thrive when everything else around it thrives, too. We can solve the problems we now face by embracing this reality. If we take care of nature, nature will take care of us. It's now time for our species To establish a life on our planet in balance with nature.
To start to thrive. When you think about it, we're completing a journey.
