National Geographic launches TikTok with video of Costa Rica

March 26, 2021

National Geographic is now on TikTok, and while we don’t fully understand the social-media platform, we do understand their first video.

The scientific and educational organization launched its TikTok on Thursday with a video featuring explorer and filmmaker Filipe DeAndrade.

The TikTok video shows humpback whales, scarlet macaws, turtles and a sloth, which DeAndrade calls “some of the most charismatic creatures that this country has to offer.”

The TikTok video “fills us with great satisfaction, because it confirms the positioning of Costa Rica as a destination based on biodiversity, a sanctuary of sustainability and the ideal tourist destination to reconnect with what is really essential,” said Tourism Minister Gustavo Segura in a statement.
