Science education and conservation in the Ngöbe Communities

The Problem

My goal is to involve the local indigenous population as researchers studying the wildlife and build support for wildlife conservation by increasing understanding of why this is important. This project is most specifically around building local support and understanding of the endangered, endemic, pygmy sloths of Escudo de Veraguas.

Our Plan

My first class is Monday in an indigenous village, where I will learn what the participants/students hope to gain from this course, and give a talk on the scientific method, together we will brain storm research we can undertake!
