The need for action has never been more urgent. Slowing Global Warming and Saving Planet Earth is possible – but we need your help. Your monthly donation goes directly to our campaigns, providing fuel and equipment for our productions and volunteer crews as they take on the biggest threat facing earth today.
In September 2019 Swedish student activist Greta Thunberg stated “Our house
is on fire.” And indeed our house, Planet Earth, is on fire. Global warming, fresh water depletion, ocean overfishing, deforestation and air and water pollution are destroying our planet.
House On Fire takes you on your very own privately guided journey through Costa Rica!! Official Guide Ale Naturalista & Producer Ray Blanco show you the most majestic sites in the country.
You will observe the incredible plant, animal and insect species! You will experience the breathtaking views of beautiful exotic locations, epic adventures and delicious local cuisine! All this while being illuminated to lessons of efficient sustainability, reforesting over 170 acres and creating an operating nature reserve.
House On Fire is much much more than beautiful cinematography. It is a show that will urgently instill valuable knowledge about gardening, aquaponics, solar energy, permaculture, conservation, recycling and more. We have only a few years before the tragic effects of mankind can not be reversed.
Join us on this critical once in a lifetime journey!!
Reserva Naturalista Costa Blanco is located on the Central Pacific of Costa Rica. The property is designed to have an organic farm, water well, solar power, aquaponics, water treatment plant, biodigester and much more. All showcasing sustainable construction throughout. A small community taking care of a forest and proving endemic species can be brought back.
While we will be visiting the entire country we will always return to the reserve to implement lessons learned along the journey. Ecosystems were deforested and exploited and now we have the opportunity to reforest while teaching lessons of sustainability.

Conservation. Butterfly Garden. Endangered Species.
Crocodile Montage. Yes yes, crocodiles! Everyone wants to see dinosaurs. We encounter crocs up close and personal. Unethical tourism is affecting the crocodile population and their ecosystem. Something equally important, a butterfly.
Panacea procilla is an elusive butterfly species found in few places. If deforestation continues we will lose this butterfly forever. This is just one example of endangered species. We will find the tree that hosts this beautiful creature
