Barro Colorado Island Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute Panama
The Barro Colorado Nature Monument (BCNM) of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) represents a huge role in the conservation of forests and wildlife.  Among its endeavors BCNM has been protecting and investigating the ecology of over 13,800 acres of land, which includes Barro Colorado Island (BCI) and five nearby peninsulas, for more than eighty years.  This site has one of the longest histories of research in the New World tropics. 

Every year almost 300 scientists from around the world visit BCI.
  In addition to the research conducted, this area provides refuge to nearly fifty percent of all the animal and bird species reported in Panama.  The species list of BCI includes up to 150 mammals and 1,200 species of plants.  Our day trip to this amazing island includes an exciting boat ride across Gatun Lake and the Panama Canal to the island, an interpretive walk among the trails led by an expert guide employed by STRI, and lunch at the facility.
