About This Project

Coiba Island is Central America’s largest uninhabited island; a forested rock in the rich Pacific Ocean that offers a living example of the diverse habitats that once prevailed in this part of the world. For 100 years, Coiba was a penal colony and so, through a quirk in history, it is still covered with lush rain forest providing sanctuary to many rare and endemic species. Using science and photography we will document this diverse island to ensure Coiba's continued protection. More on NatGeo!
