Danaus Ecological Reserve
Let’s take a quiz…a geography quiz. Yes, I know I am a veterinarian and this is a show about pets but you will see that it all makes sense. Name a country that has no standing army…where it is ilegal to own a wild animal, has a population of about 4.5 million people who are all educated for free from primary school to high school. Ranked 42nd in the world for environmental protection, has great beaches and fabulous people who speak Spanish. Figured out where I am talking about? Costa Rica.
