Description


This book provides important insights on ecological citizenship, political biogeography, and Costa Rica immersions in some of the most biologically intense places on the planet. Countless observers have documented this nation’s natural exceptionalism but there is so much more to this tiny republic. Costa Rica has universal health care, a longer life expectancy than the U.S., the happiest people on the planet, and no military. Only by expanding our attention to all of these faces can one begin to see Ecotopia’s Prism—how the intersections of Costa Rica’s ecology, economy, and culture foster and inhibit sustainability. Since 2007, more than 100 Huxley students of environmental studies have explored the landscapes, culture and economy of Costa Rica. This book‘s six chapters wrestle with the complicated webs of economy, ecology, and equity that reveal how Costa Rica’s world renowned system of protected areas and national parks is where the nation’s conservation of biodiversity began, but, it will be finished, for the good or the bad, outside of them.
