A “Nose to Beak” Experience — Canopy Tower Family Builds Relations with Summit Park

July 8, 2013

On July 4th, Canopy Tower guide Carlos Bethancourt and the Cheepers! Birding on a Budget group were invited for a special visit to Summit Municipal Park to meet a young Harpy Eagle that just arrived to the park at the end of June.  The group thoroughly enjoyed the talk by the park's Director, Nestor Correa, and the "behind-the-scenes" tour.  In addition to the Harpy Eagle, the group met a Black Hawk-Eagle, young Gray Foxes, baby sloths and a tamandua, who stole everyone's hearts!  Canopy Tower Family is now building relations with Summit Park to support their rehabilitation and education programs for the protection of animals in Panama.
