Join the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) for this special talk on the emerald forests of Costa Rica.

There is no other country on the planet that possess such an abundance of remaining wildlife. Costa Rica has more habitats and more species per square metre than anywhere else on Earth.

This talk will take you on a tour of the core habitats; from the coral reefs to the mountain tops of over 3,000m and all the transitional habitats in-between. It will also seek to answer the question: if Costa Rica can do it, why can't the rest of us?

This event has been organised by the South committee of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in collaboration with the Great Exhibition Road Festival.
