Monkey Ladder Vines (Bauhinia glabra)


There are an almost uncountable number of plant varieties in even the smallest area of rainforest.  This is a small sample of the plant images we have collected.  We will be working hard to identify and post more from our portfolio over time.  Any botanists with an interest in the identification of tropical plants – we’d love to hear from you! 

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.
