Our Tropical Ecology Projects Block group talking with Max Villalobos, the reforestation coordinator at Osa Conservation in Costa Rica. The group learned about primary and secondary forests in this area, and the work being carried out to conserve this ecologically important part of Costa Rica.

April 8 | Amalfi Coast
April 7 | Turtle Patrol!
The Costa Rica Projects Block is at the Piro Biological Station! The group woke up before 5:00 a.m. this morning to go on their first morning turtle patrol. They walked through the forest to reach the beach, and once there searched along a few kilometers of beach in search of evidence pointing to newly established nests and for signs of predation. In the first photo the group is listening to Manuel Sanchez, the sea turtle conservation coordinator at Osa, as he explains how to check on existing turtle nests; in the second photo the group is searching the beach at dawn.
