On our educational trips, students study a wide range of animal and plant life throughout the Buena Vista property. They also perform independent research projects. Courses are taught by a diverse set of professors and educational institutions.

Through education and research, they gain valuable knowledge on the importance of the environment and return home as advocates for conservation of all rainforest environments.

This experience has shaped my life forever and I will always hold it in the back of my mind when making conscious efforts to become a conservationist biologist.

I always had that yellow book in my hands. I wrote down any notes the professors talked about, names and drawings of plants and animals, places we went to, new food I ate, and anything memorable that happened. I will always cherish that book, for it holds many memories.

Had a wonderful group last time. Saw tons of wildlife including 9 species of monkey, about 90 species of birds, giant otters and a mama jaguar with her cub!
