Canopy Crane Access System


The two canopy cranes are available to all investigators with authorization to use STRI facilities for research.

Graduate students are usually exempted from crane use fees. The suggested fee to include in grant proposals is $300 per eight-hour day. This fee is negotiable for long-term projects.
Please contact us.

Crane users must have the standard research and collection permits required by the Government of Panama of all investigators (apply on-line). Crane users also receive services from STRI's central administration (mail, computer access, etc.) and are subject to standard STRI users fees (fee schedule). These user fees are waived for Panamanian citizens.
