Costa Rican International Herpetological Symposium is back in its Fifth edition
After five years of obligatory absence, the Costa Rican International Herpetological Symposium is back in its Fifth edition.
Costa Rica is home to 5% of the planet's biodiversity. Though small in geographic area, Costa Rica has one of the highest densities of herpetofauna in the world with more than 440 species of reptiles and amphibians. The Symposium will feature presentations and workshops about conservation and herpetology by organizations and individuals.

Global Big Day Oct 8, 2022 – Another Great Day for Sarapiquí!
Global Big Day (GBD) 2022 was on October 8. For those who aren’t familiar with it, this is a celebration in which large numbers of people across many countries observe as many species as they can in a 24-hour period to give a picture of the current state of bird populations from around the world. This data helps to inform policies and to protect birds in their habitats.
