Title: Re: Tropical forest dreams and nightmares
Dear Betsy,
I was doing ANOTHER rant on Jungles but I have had to change it in the draft folder daily!   I was in Fantasyland to a large extent.    Are there not some Jungles still substantially intact in Countries where the people are benign, not Gringicidal maybe and allow sensitive samples to be transferred to Specialist "Arks"?

As many of you are aware, the country of Costa Rica is doing a much better job than most in protecting their unique ecosystems.  In conjunction with Duke University and others, they have formed the non-profit OTS, Organization for Tropical Studies.

Rather than relate all the information here, I'd like to refer interested parties to their websites:

OTS North American Office:    http://www.ots.duke.edu


Las Cruces/Wilson Botanical Gardens, San Vito, Costa Rica: http://www.ots.ac.cr
