High in a Costa Rican cloud forest, in the valley below Mt Chirripó, a unique conservation venture is under way.

Costa Rica’s rainforests are returning after many years of deforestation. Together we can continue to set an example for the rest of the world! 😊❤️🙏

Two new bird species have been confirmed in the reserve this month! The Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) and the Canada Warbler (Cardellina canadensis) (which had been reported before, but never confirmed), were both photographed by our new bird intern, Jonathan Slifkin. Great job Jonathan!

This is the most profound thing I’ve heard in years and it resonates with me like nothing else. I feel like this guy wrote this for me for you because I couldn’t come up with the words. I hope you read this.

“I know a lot of you are really upset about the Notre Dame fire in Paris and I’m really sad, too. To see something so beautiful and so carefully constructed be damaged by forces out of your control is very painful. As a scientist who studies species that are going extinct right now, this is the feeling I grapple with more often than I’d like. The irreplaceable work of art that I worship is nature and to watch it senselessly crumble to the ground every day hurts my heart. I highly respect your feelings about what happened today and I hope the parallelI described can help you better understand how many of the people who have devoted their lives to conservation feel quite often. We know you get tired of us shouting about species going extinct and we’re sorry for the broken record but we’re surrounded by burning cathedrals built across millennia and no one seems to care.”

This Exquisite Spike-thumb Frog is one of the critically endangered species that Jonathan Kolby’s team is working to protect from extinction in Honduras. 🐸

Nature isn’t just a backdrop to your Instagram selfie; a new study shows that rebuilding natural habitats is an “essential survival strategy.”
