Butterflies are one of nature’s most eye-catching creatures.  They can be found from the high arctic tundra down through the far stretches of the southern hemisphere.  Like birds, they inhabit almost every ecosystem on Earth.  In the Neotropical region of the Americas, the diversity of butterflies is incredibly high; and hundreds of species can be found in Panama alone.  Come join the expert guides of the Canopy Tower and Canopy Lodge, as we explore the lowlands of the Canal Area and the mist-laden foothills of western Panama for these gems of the insect world!

Herpetology at the Isthmus

Eyelash Pit-Viper El Valle Panama

June 11-19, 2018

Of all the animals to encounter in a tropical rainforest, amphibians and reptiles are often a favorite find.  From showy lizards to leaf-like frogs, shy turtles to pencil-thin snakes, this group of animals fascinates many.  In the lowlands and foothills of Central Panama, dozens of species of frogs, lizards, snakes and other herpetofauna exhibit a dazzling array of life-history traits as they adapt to a wide variety of habitats.  Many species are most active at night, when the forest becomes alive with the calls of frogs, toads and other nocturnal creatures.  Join Canopy Family naturalist guides and herpetologist Dr. Stephen Mullin at the Canopy Tower and Canopy Lodge for our first-ever tour focused on these vertebrates and their amazing natural histories!
