This project began in 2009 with a 52 HAS project in a small town in Olá, Coclé. Currently we have expanded to other parts in San Carlos ( Panama Oeste Province), Cambutal and Guanico ( Los Santos Province) and additional projects in Olá ( Las Mesitas waterfall)
In these Projects we manage a small zoo, exotic fruits plantations ( guava and persian lemon), cottages for visitors, farm animals as well as a sheep herd for educational purposes. We are also venturing in rural tracks of land for nature lovers and another thematic park in Los Santos.
We are actively involved in recycling and enviromental issues within the schools and colleges in Panama, specially Panama city, Coclé and Los Santos provinces.
Our projects hire local hand labor and we emphazise team working and full respect of our enviroment.
We are close to several National parks, nice clean rivers and waterfalls, forests and mountain range. We also have a busy Schedule that involves multiple and varied elements of work and we are continously looking for new challenges and opportunities to expand and share our experiences.
You must be aware that we do pride in hard work and this involves a lot of physical activitiy. During the weekends you are free to explore the surrounding towns and cities and we will include you in as many trips to the other projects as possible but it is very important to understand that you have to like the idea of being in nature most of the time.

In some cases we need a charismatic, easygoing person that understands our Mission and share it with school principals, college professors and students and the educational system in Panama. We firmly believe that they will benefit with a first hand experience with nature and will change their attitude and respect for wildlife and flora.

*️️️️️️Help to take care of our exotic and farm animals and explain this to visitors.
*️️️️️️Visit school, universities, colleges and government institutions to invite them to participate in our recycling and enviromental programs.
*️️️️️️ Visit and talk to local goverenment officials to make them aware of the projects. This might include teaching and helping people change their attitudes and knowledge about nature and wildlife in general.
*️️️️️️ Prepare activities that will enhance participation of the community in our Project. These might include participating in school and city fairs, elaborating presentations on community meetings, lectures, visits to other similar projects, radio and TV talks and preparing events at their own initiative but under our supervisión.
