Field Biology Trip to Costa Rica--June 2008

In June 2008, Dr. Jim Edson and I took 17 students to Costa Rica to study the geology, flora, and fauna of the region.  Here are some photos from the trip.

 

Here is the entire gang, taken at a coffee plantation near San Jose.  Front row, left to right are Rafa, our bus driver, Martin Maxwell, Meghan Pope, Tony Garita, Rachel Pierce, Jane Purtle, Diane Garbooshian, Jill Glomb, and Sylvia Ngar.  Back row, left to right are Bryan McDuffie, Dr. Jim Edson, Lauren Huey, Susan Carver, Josh Carver, Amanda Pagan, Chris Ellington, Mark Paul, Deb Paul, and Dr. John Hunt.

 

Mark Paul found this mother and baby two-toed sloth near the beach at Manuel Antonio National Park on the Pacific Coast.

 

This white-faced capuchin was also at Manuel Antonio.
