A small fieldtrip with a great value
Environmental Brigades Fieldtrip

Recently, Canopy Family supported a small fieldtrip with a great value: kids from Darién that belong to the Environmental Brigades, organized by Loira Castillo from the Ministry of Environment, visited Soberanía National Park and Summit Municipal Park, located on the outskirts of Panama City just a few minutes away from the Canopy Tower. The purpose of the trip was to immerse the kids in the biodiversity of Panama and allow them to watch the magnificent Harpy Eagle kept in captivity in Summit Park. Summit Park is an education, conservation, and recreation center, and one of the first wild animal rescue and rehabilitation centers in Panama. Besides the Harpy Eagle, there are currently around 200 individuals representing nearly 100 species of mammals, birds, and reptiles under human care in the park. Among them are charismatic species like Spider Monkeys, White-faced Capuchin monkeys, Jaguars, Pumas, Ocelots, land turtles, and a Tapir.  All participants had a blast during their visit. At Canopy Family, our hearts are full of joy just seeing all these happy faces, and we hope to keep supporting more of this kind of activity in the future!
