In Depth: The Bellbird Biological Corridor

Editor’s note: The stories and pictures presented below on the Bellbird Biological Corridor represent the work of all nine students on the 2014 University of Missouri Costa Rica field reporting team. On Tuesday, they traveled from the mountaintop cloud forests of Monteverde to the mangrove forests along the Gulf of Nicoya for wide-ranging interviews and observations. During Tuesday evening and part of the day on Wednesday, they organized and produced the following report, which we are told is the first journalistic coverage of the corridor and plans for restoring the health of its biodiversity, water resources and other natural systems.

—Bill Allen, assistant professor of science journalism
