Osa’s future lies in the hands of the next generation. We believe in the importance of environmental education as a critical component of any conservation project. Participatory environmental education is helping us to transform intangible concepts like climate change, biodiversity protection, and natural resource management into observable realities for local and international students both in the classroom and in the field. Our environmental education program is dedicated to increasing society’s engagement with the natural world through science and exploration, and to training a new generation of engaged citizen stewards.
In addition to providing in-class instruction and environmental curriculum to over 15 schools in the Osa Peninsula, our environmental education program serves both local and international students through year-round field-based learning opportunities at our Greg Gund Conservation Center.
