Johnny Madrigal searches for trees that will be cut down to allow the growth of larger trees on an area under reforestation on the slopes of the Barva Volcano , Costa Rica, 40 kilometers (25 miles) northeast of the capital of San Jose, Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2006. Costa Rican authorities announced a new program that will use GPS satellite technology to help fight illegal logging, and aid the recuperation of the forests coverage, which has increased from from 21% in 1987 to 51% in 2005.
