Set between its tropical Caribbean and Pacific coasts, Costa Rica is one of the most breath-taking countries in the world. Even though it covers just 0.03% of the world’s landmass, it is home to an incredible 500,000 species including jaguars, pumas, monkeys and turtles. This is the highest density of species of any country in the world.
Frontier has been at the forefront of conservation research in Costa Rica since 2009, and provides ground-breaking survey data for use in climate change and conservation research as well as a committed volunteer base for wild animal rehabilitation.
Our most popular projects in Costa Rica include:
- Costa Rica Big Cats, Primates & Turtle Conservation: Live and work in an established rainforest camp, learn surveying techniques and help gather vital conservation data.
- Costa Rica Animal Rescue Project: Work at an animal sanctuary caring for and rehabilitating sloths, spider monkeys and lots more.
