Republic of Panama

This trip was made possible thanks to the support of the many Swarthmore alumni and donors, who created the Enders Field Funds Endowment, in honor of professor emeritus of Biology Robert K. Enders.

This 10-day field trip to the Republic of Panama during spring break (Friday, March 5 to Sunday, March 14, 2004) allowed students to experience the flora and fauna of several tropical environments including rain forest, dry forest, mountain forest, mangrove forest, cloud forest, and coral reefs.  At the end of the trip, we visited Barro Colorado Island, one of the most prestigious tropical research stations in the world located in the Panama canal and administered by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.

As a teacher, I feel privilege by being able to offer my students this unique  opportunity outside the classroom and to share my love for the flora, fauna and people of Latin America..
