We design our educational packages to give students a hands-on educational experience, which directly relates to the issues our planet faces today. For example, animal activity, along with meteorological and ecological data, informs scientists about the environment, including warning signs of serious climate change.
Students and volunteers participate in our ongoing research, one-on-one with our biologists. Groups are divided up and participate in different activities, such as data collection, to be part of the research.
Our environmental education programs at Veragua Rainforest include:
All of our environmental educational packages are tailor-made. After understanding the group’s interests, our Educational Program Coordinator and Research Coordinator work together with our potential visitors to create a program with suggested activities to take place with our on-site biologist and naturalist guides, who are your hosts.
In many cases, groups have already been working on certain topics in the classroom and come to Veragua to apply their studies.
We offer rustic, researcher-type accommodations with bunk beds and ceiling fans. Our bathrooms and showers are shared by gender and kept impeccably clean.
There is a social area for playing ping pong, cards, or other table games which is open until 10:00 PM.
And above all: eagerness for adventure and hands-on research!
By request we can provide special menus for visitors.
