History of Canopy Gliding

The technique was originally developed by scientists in the US to study the canopies of trees in forests there without disturbing the life in the limbs and trunk by having to attach ladders or climbing equipment to the tree. Apparently it was not until a few years ago that scientists were able to study the canopy ecosystems in great depth through the use of this technique, and once it was developed, the rainforest became the optimal target for its use due to its large and complex ecosystems. The technique has been successfully used in the Biological station in Costa Rica for this purpose.

It was not long before the growing tourist industry in Costa Rica took notice of this technique and decided that it was too exciting an activity to pass up. Thus the sport was born.
