CABO BLANCO

It was here where due to the initiative of a Swedish citizen, Nicholas Wessberg and his wife Denmark citizen Karen Morgensen, that the world famous Costa Rican national park and protective areas system was born. The visionary project turned about 1,250 hectares of pastureland with an initial 15% of primary natural forest into a strictly protected area. This allowed the hitherto depleted pasture lands to regenerate, with minimal human aid and mostly through natural means, seeds being dispersed by wind and carried by water or animals expanding their habitats, serving the original uncut forest as genetic bank. Today that 85% of pastures land are a secondary forest in process of equilibrium.
