La prioridad principal del Laboratorio Marino de Galeta es la investigación, pero siempre buscamos mejores maneras de comunicar los resultados investigativos a un público no-científico, y de aumentar su conciencia acerca del mundo natural. Nuestro Programa Educativo ofrece visitas guiadas a estudiantes, turistas y público en general. A través de estas visitas, resaltamos la importancia de conservar nuestros singulares ecosistemas y la maravillosa oportunidad que éstos representan para los científicos que buscan entender el ambiente que todos compartimos. El Laboratorio Marino de Galeta está ubicado en la costa caribeña de Panamá, en la provincia de Colón. Aquí, puedes admirar la belleza de importantes ecosistemas de manglar y enamorarte de este sitio único a orillas del mar. Información: http://www.stri.org/espanol/index.php
