WE NEED YOUR HELP!
It is not easy for me to write this but we need your help. The COVID-19 pandemic took the whole world by surprise, and we're no exception! - - Its effect on our situation is reaching a critical point. Without volunteers and interns, without the fees they pay, our future is looking bleak. There is a possibility that we will not be able to continue the important work at the station - monitoring flora and fauna in an incredibly biological diverse setting, provide experiential education to all who come to the station, and continuing the hard work all of you have been a part of.
It pains me so much to think of that possibility and I want you all to know that Manuel and I have taken great measures so that everything we have strived for can continue. We have reduced costs greatly at the station but even with all the changes we are making, it may not be enough.
If you can, would you please consider making a small donation at our GoFundMe page? If you can’t, please consider helping share our story.

All of the hard work by you and by all is at risk of being lost if we are unable to support the station during the pandemic shutdown.
We know you can't travel, we know you are facing your own set of challenges, but we are hoping that you, and others like you, would consider supporting the station to keep Caño Palma going.
Your donation will help ensure the station can continue to operate, without shutting down.

ABOUT THE STATION
For the past 27 years we have hosted dedicated researchers, students, volunteers, naturalists and other like minded people keen on conservation from over 30 different countries.
We are a unique privately run not-for-profit biological research station located in the tropical coastal rainforests of Costa Rica.
We proudly run our own ongoing monitoring projects. These projects are successful because of some extraordinary people who come from all over the planet to take part.
Visitors pay for food and accommodations, and work long hours, all to gain valuable tropical work experience. We are so proud of the fact that so many of our volunteers have gone on to further themselves in the scientific world.
We host independent researchers, providing them with a base from which to conduct their investigations and have been the part of some amazing publications.
VOLUNTEER & INTERN INFORMATION
The Caño Palma Biological Station takes on hard working volunteers and interns to help study and protect nesting sea turtles, as well as support numerous other long term monitoring programmes. However, due to the world wide travel restrictions this is not feasible at this time.
If you would like to come to the station when it is again possible, please write email@example.com .
