We have found many people visiting us are interested in the local conservation programs efforts as well as tropical ecology in general. We have been working with Osa Conservation on the Cat monitoring program since 2014 and are very happy to announce a package that includes an introduction to mangroves, wild animal monitoring, turtle conservation, reforestation and sustainable living. Osa Conservaion's Osa Verde Biostation is a research center dedicated to environmental education and also provides facilities for scientists studying many facets of tropical biology.
