I am reporting on the final three days for the Tropical Field Biology – Panama 2014 trip. On Wednesday (Day 17), about half of the group had an opportunity to visit an Embera Village. This included an exciting canoe river trip to the village and learning about body paint, dance, and other cultural practices. About 5% of the Panamanian people are indigenous and live on “comarcas” with special political status. Another group went to the Altos de Campana National Park to explore its beautiful cloud forest habitats, serenity, and significantly cooler climate.
