Christopher Columbus called it the "rich coast" – a strip of land that straddles the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean. But Costa Rica's rich natural beauty is threatened by the over-exploitation of its resources and by mono-culture farming. Huge banana- and pineapple plantations have reduced the country's natural bio-diversity – but activists are now trying to preserve what's left of it. Costa Rica is a natural paradise that combines distinctive geography and a wide variety of plant- and animal species. About a quarter of the country's land has been designated as natural parks or other protected areas. Eco-tourism is booming.

Almost certainly, it was conceived by a former Boy Scout — it’s the ultimate circumstance in which to “be prepared.” With devastating events in recent years like Hurricane Sandy, the tidal wave and nuclear disaster in Japan, the earthquakes in Haiti and Indonesia, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the so-called “doomsday” scenario has been a subject of a little more than just speculation. Discovery Channel looks at the United States government’s contingency plan for if and when such a disaster occurs in America’s Doomsday Plan.
