Currently, we are planting trees in Southern Costa Rica near the Osa Peninsula. The Osa Peninsula is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. This is because the Osa was once an island that joined with mainland Costa Rica. The Osa contains over 3,100 species of plants, many of which have been newly discovered. The Osa contains 750 species of trees, 124 species of mammals, 117, species of amphibians and reptiles, 40 species of freshwater fish, and 6,000 species of insects. Many of these species are found nowhere else on Earth or even in Costa Rica. This is a very special place.
