Panama City, Gamboa, Galeta Point

Panama is where man-made marvels and natural phenomena intersect.

Known as the Bridge of the Americas, Panama’s narrow isthmus connects North and South America and acts as a conduit for biodiversity in this hemisphere. Thanks to this continental crossroads, the country is home to the most diverse flora and fauna in Central America.

From working alongside practicing scientists on a wetland conservation project to visiting a local research station on the Caribbean coast, learn about how the incredible engineering feat of the Panama Canal impacted the surrounding ecosystems of this Central American oasis.
