Education is knowledge and knowledge is power, power to affect change! Remote communities in Panama often lack equal access and opportunity to educational resources and programming. Our primary goal is, through community workshops and public school programs, to bring science and environmental education (STEM) to these "at risk" communities, so as to empower them with the knowledge to affect change.
Knowledge is power. There is a great store of human knowledge concerning the Neotropics yet we have still not even scratched the surface. Our goal in research is to investigate meaningful scientific questions that will help us formulate the most dynamic and effective means to conserving the whole array of natural resources Panama holds.

The Republic of Panamá is sandwhiched between Costa Rica to the west and Colombia to the east in Central America. Conservacion Panama Inc works throughout Panama but focuses on and specializes in remote and difficult to access areas that are largely undeveloped. The map (right) shows our current focus areas of research, conservation and education projects. These areas are of special interest due to their ecosystem, species presence or conservation need.

Conservation is an action. We design conservation actions based on scientific knowledge. Our overall goal in conservation actions are to maintain, repair and protect valuable natural resources in Panama in cooperation with the communities we work in. Successful conservation actions require cooperation and assistance with the communities themselves.
