Ep. 34 - Cloud Forest Rescue Mission

A trip up into a Costa Rican cloud forest quickly turned into a rescue mission when we discovered a large chunk of it had been logged for cattle pasture. The ground was littered with plants that would have simply died had nothing been done. What you are about to hear is plant guru, Dave Janas, walking us through the process of rehabilitating the plants we were able to save. In propagating these plants, Dave is preserving at least some of the genetic diversity of these rapidly shrinking habitats. 

If you would like to help Dave in his mission to conserve and propagate Costa Rica's unique flora, consider donating coarse vermiculite to the Wilson Botanical Garden
