Panama: Galeta Point
Just outside the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal is the Galeta Point Marine Lab. Owned and operated by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, The Lab is used by thousands of scientists and researchers. The location is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs, an immense mangrove system and sea grass ecosystems. With so many ecosystems within reach of the lab, Panama provides great opportunity for research on a variety of topics and gives T4O Students multiple research options! We cannot wait to participate in further work at Galeta Point Marine Lab! Check out the underwater webcam below!
