Red-legged Honey Creeper (Cyanerpes cyaneus)


These are some of the many birds that are seen in Costa Rican Rainforests. 

Birds in this gallery live mostly in lowlands rainforests, or where the forest meets the ocean, but many species also thrive in mountainous rainforests and many migrate thousands of miles, using the lush rainforest as merely a waypoint on their journeys.

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.
