Costa Rica, Model of Conservation25 minute audio visual, GRADES: 1-12
Costa Rica, Model of Conservation, serves as a good introduction to the people, culture, government, terrain, and ecology of this fascinating Central American country. The viewer gets a first hand sense of the place; the festivals in progress, the diverse faces, scenes of the capital city, San Jose, or the fragile beauty of Costa Rica's many kinds of rain forests. The follow up discussion tends to be far ranging: "How do you photograph humming birds in flight? What is the global impact of deforestation? What is the general attitude towards being photographed in Costa Rica? What are traveling conditions like near the extinct volcanos and through dense rain forests?" Cost $500 per day.
