La Selva Biological Research Station

Buenos Dias!

Today we travelled to La Selva Biological Research Station which is a huge (almost 1800 hectares - a little over two acres each) tropical research station responsible for much of the worlds biological research done in the tropics.  We worked on an invasive species project, planted some native ornamentals and took a hike into the forest where we had to cross another swinging bridge that was easily over 200 feet long.  On the hike we saw toucans, peccaries (wild sort-of pigs), strangler figs, huge trees, and we got up close to some Howler Monkeys!

Have a great day!
