Welcome to CREA!

Conservation through Research Education and Action, a non-profit organization, offers travel abroad educational opportunities to Panama.

A core activity is a visit to the Cocobolo Nature Reserve an 1100 acre tropical forest in the heart of a biodiversity hotspot

The trip has been life changing for me.  I have a whole new outlook on the importance of biodiversity and conservation of the rainforest in Panama and beyond.  I am able to bring back new ideas to my classroom and discuss examples of current research in conservation biology.” Tanya Buxton, Menlo High School Biology Teacher
