Adopta A Panamá Rainforest — ADOPTA for short — is a non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to promoting the conservation of forests and their sustainable use for the benefit of the people and wildlife of Panamá. We support our on-the-ground conservation efforts through education initiatives and research projects that aim to improve our societal understanding of biology, ecology, and management strategies. Much of our work is accomplished with the generous help of students and volunteers.
