Dr. Da Janeen has created an idea to regrow a speciel type of rain forest called dry forest.
His idea is as follows :

Cattle from nearby farms are allowed to wander around the national park. At the same time farmers are encouraged to let animals from national parks onto their land ( for example tapir). In this wat seeds from the animals dung are being planted on both lans. Farmers would be allowed to chop down cirtain trees. The forest will be big. It will then be called Guanacaste, which is the name of a rare tree that used to grow all along the pacific coast of central America.
