 American Forests: The Guanacaste idea - Guanacaste, Costa Rica
This maximizes the number of habitats and the amount of biodiversity." In Guanacaste, for example, animals tend to migrate during the dry season away from the parched coast, to the more humid forests in mountains to the east, and a reserve designed to house these species must protect all their seasonal habitats.
The planners did not want Guanacaste to be a national park in the traditional sense; instead, they were determined to integrate the reserve into the national social and economic fabric and make it a "working asset" for Costa Rican society.
In practically all of Guanacaste province's lowlands, however, these trees are isolated and failing to reproduce; ecologists call them the "living dead." The dry forest is so ravaged, in fact, that even the 423-square-mile conservation area has only two examples of how it looked before the Spanish colonization began.
