Abstract: 

Kids for Saving Earth Worldwide (KSE) has a rainforest area in Costa Rica. Find out how you and your students can help protect it. Costa Rica's "Braulio Carrillo National Park" is a protected area of great biological diversity. Conservationalists from many nations are working to extend its protecting boundaries into neighboring forest land that could soon be lost to development. The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) facilitates the Kids for Saving Earth Worldwide Rainforest Program to protect this land through: fences, trails and guards as needed, a crucial education program by OTS for the surrounding Costa Rican communities and a worldwide education program by KSE, and the purchase of rainforest land.
