Running Wild Expedition: Costa Rica

Running Wild Media recently hosted it’s first expedition tour to Costa Rica to provide participants an adventure through the jungle to get close to wildlife as well as a “run and gun” photography workshop for amateur and beginning photographers. Six participants from around the US signed up for a 10 day tour of the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Follow #runningwildcostarica on instagram to see more photos from this expedition.

Running Wild expeditioners visited a diverse array of parks including Manuel Antonio National Park, Rainmaker Private Reserve, Saguaro Ecologico Monteverde, The Monteverde Institute and the incredible cloud forests of Monteverde. These parks provided plenty of opportunities to snag incredible photos of Costa Rica’s diverse and colorful wildlife.

The mission of these trips, is not only to get participants close to wildlife, but to get them to work hands on with wildlife in a research or rehabilitation capacity so they can be more immersed in the environment in which they are visiting and truly appreciate nature from a point of view few visitors get. There are also plenty of opportunities for heart pounding adventure however, and this trip included intense zip lining through the rainforest and long suspension bridges through the canopy.

The goal, is to offer two to three unique trips like this a year so participants can chose from a variety of environments, countries and wildlife. The next Running Wild Expedition will likely be to Honduras to dive and photograph coral reefs and their inhabitants.
