New STRI video Punta Galeta: “Muchos sitios en un solo lugar”

The video features long and short-term research projects conducted at Galeta, education efforts and extension programs with the Colon community

STRI's Office of Public Information produced and directed a new video “Punta Galeta: “Muchos sitios en un solo lugar” [Galeta Point: “Many places in a single site”] realized by Enrique Castro and narrated by Galeta's director and promoter Stanley Heckadon-Moreno, Wayne Sousa, professor at the University of California at Berkeley and other collaborators. This video is part of the EDAVIS project and is supported by Senacyt and STRI's Public Information Office.

The video features long and short-term research projects conducted at Galeta, education efforts and extension programs with the Colon community. It also highlights how scientific information and its interpretation to the locals can turn around unhealthy practices into sustainable activities like controlled fisheries, wiser uses of the soils, the rational use of all natural resources, and the protection of what is left of the mangroves in the province of Colon, most vital environment of the coastal Caribbean line of Panama.

The 25-minute video will sale for $12 at STRI’s minibookstores. Interested docents and school officials may acquire the video consulting Julia Vejas, Office of Communications and Public Programs at 212-8169, or Illia Grenald at the Galeta Marine Laboratory, at 212-8191.
