Our faith in humanity was restored this week by Edgar Mora, the visionary former mayor of Curridabat, Costa Rica. During his twelve-year tenure, Mora led an extraordinary transformation of the city into a sanctuary for wildlife. His innovative approach included bestowing citizenship upon crucial pollinators such as bees, hummingbirds, bats, and butterflies, as well as recognizing the rights of native plants and trees. We are profoundly grateful to Mora for championing the recognition and sovereignty of all living beings in Curridabat.
