Choose a biological station based on the learning objectives or goals of your trip

The Jaguars Jungle is the most remote biological station in Costa Rica. The station is part of a 130 acre primary rainforest reserve that borders the Corcovado National Park and overlooks the Cano Island Marine Reserve. This station is boat access only, making it the perfect place to combine marine and terrestrial biology. The main conservation program here is the Jaguar monitoring project. Students can participate by setting up camera traps and collecting and cataloging video data captured in the private reserve.

The Progreso station is for groups who are focused on community engagement and ecotourism development. At this station, groups can participate in various conservation projects, the most popular being our sea turtle conservation effort. At Progreso we focus on teaching the local community how to benefit from rural community tourism and make poaching a thing of the past. Thus far, we have helped locals develop tours on their properties including mangrove tours, lagoon tours, cheese making, sugar cane processing, and artisan gold mining. Groups can participate in all of these tours and observe the effects of ecotourism on a community.
