New CLICK Program in Panama

Posted on Jan 28, 2015

With this storm settling down, Twan and I are preparing for our return to Panama tomorrow (hopefully). We are assisting with a new program this year called CLICK, and its goal is to assist rural villages in Panama to protect the biodiversity around them. High school students from the Marvelwood School in Kent, Connecticut will work with children from the rural village of La Zahina in eastern Panama along with Lauren Bowers (daughter of Marvelwood Alum Chuck Bowers) to document the wildlife in their “backyards” and around the Cocobolo Nature Reserve in order to better understand and help protect global biodiversity. The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History and the Meet Your Neighbours Global Biodiversity Project will oversee this project and help students with their photography skills. We will be providing updates about the project but wanted to get the word out now for everyone to start looking for upcoming posts about this new program.
