Costa Rica to Shut Down Zoos and Release Animals into their Natural Habitats

Though Costa Rica is small in size, it is rich in biodiversity. The country spreads across a mere 0.03% of the earth’s surface, but is blessed with lush forests that is home to 500 thousand unique organisms and represents over 4% of all the known species on Earth.


Some of the species from the wild have been captured and put in the cages of zoo in the country. But now, there is some good news for the animals. The Costa Rican government has declared plans to close its zoos as a step to restore natural order for all its animal inhabitants. The animals could now be free of the cold bars of cage.
