Education Packages

All of our environmental educational packages are tailor-made. After understanding the group’s interests, our Educational Program Coordinator & Research Coordinator create a program with suggested activities to be developed with our on-site biologist and naturalist guides.

Normally, groups have already been working on these topics and come to Veragua to apply their studies.
