The Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica—The Most Biologically Intense Place on Earth
February 3, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Lynne Wheeler, Southern Maryland Audubon Society Secretary and Membership Chair
Come and enjoy a presentation by Lynne of her October 2015 trip to the Osa Peninsula. This southwestern corner of Costa Rica is known as “where the rainforest meets the sea.” The Osa’s geological history makes it home to a nearly unparalleled amount of biodiversity, estimated to house 2.5% of the biodiversity of the entire world. See photos of many bird species such as Scarlet Macaws, Trogons, Hummingbirds, Motmots, Woodcreepers, and Cotingas, along with tropical plants, multiple monkey species, reptiles and the Green-and-Black Poison dart frog. She might share a few photos of the fish she and her husband John caught too!
