Panama 2018: A Photo Journal

At Cocobolo Nature Reserve, time is spent exploring, researching, and gaining an understanding of the natural world. Students, teachers, photographers, and scientists work together to discover, study, and document all types of living creatures and their habitat. Marvelwood has been making yearly trips to Panama and Cocobolo Nature Reserve since it opened in 2007.  

Cocobolo Nature Reserve is a privately owned reserve located in the Mamoni Valley, Central Panama, on the southern slope of the continental divide, a mountain ridge halfway between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Covering over 1,100 acres of primary cloud forests and secondary lowland rainforests, this vital yet fragile piece of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor harbors endangered wildlife such as jaguars, pumas, ocelots, margays, crested curassows, and harlequin toads as well as thousands of species of amazing invertebrates. Cocobolo is an extension of the Narganá Wilderness Area and the Chagres National Park, covering hundreds of thousands of acres of pristine forests home to rare and endangered species.
