Childrens Eternal Rainforest

The Childrens Eternal Rain Forest, known by locals as Bosque Eterno de los Ninos, actually began as a school project amongst Swedish children who sought to save a piece of the rain forest. The effort exploded into a fund raising effort that expanded over 44 countries, eventually culminating into this 54,000 acre piece of protected rain and cloud forest. Today, this is the largest private reserve in the world stretching from Monteverde to Arenal Volcano National Park.
