The creeks, rivers, ponds and wetlands which are so common in the rainforest provide habitat to a large number of fascinating and often unique amphibians. Colorful, tiny poison dart frogs, huge bullfrogs, toads and salamanders coexist in the wet of the rainforest. Many salamander species in Costa Rica are at risk. We will work to ensure we provide “salamander friendly” habitat and work with the Costa Rican government to bring their numbers up.

Become part of the 'Butterfly Effect'

Why Pierella? What is a Pierella?

The Pierella is a butterfly native to Costa Rica – Pierella hevina.
This small creature is behind the theory of the ‘Butterfly Effect’
that states small efforts can result in far reaching outcomes.

Restoring rainforest results in these ‘Butterfly Effects’:
Biodiversity; carbon capture; ecosystem services;
sustainability; and wildlife corridors.
