Posted on Jun 4, 2015

Join us at RTPI on Thursday, June 11 at 7:00PM for a free public event – The Migratory Connection: RTPI’s Tropical Conservation and Education Programs by RTPI President Twan Leenders.


Find out where your favorite warblers and hummingbirds hang out when they are not in your backyard and be amazed by the other tropical birds they share their wintering grounds with. Meet some of the rarest frogs on our planet and see what RTPI is doing to help save them from extinction.

Explore the exotic wildlife that calls the jungles of Costa Rica and Panama home – and see how some of it visits us on a regular basis. Learn about the work that RTPI staff and associates are doing in Central America educating the next generation of young biologists, studying migratory birds and critically endangered amphibians and designing pragmatic solutions to combat the loss of biodiversity.
