Protecting sea turtles and their natural habitat
hub for Scientific research
As part of our mission to protect Guatemala’s coastal and marine ecosystems we offer the opportunity for universities and colleges, as well as independent researchers, to conduct scientific research and conservation projects at Estación Biológica el Banco.
You’ll have full use of our lab space and facilities, and our team can assist you with organising the logistics associated with your project to ensure its success.
Ecology and conservation of Guatemala’s Pacific Coast
perfect venue for study
Estación Biológica el Banco is the perfect location to hold workshops and courses on the ecology and conservation of Guatemala’s Pacific Coast. With both inside and outside workspaces, we offer a dynamic learning environment for students and workshop participants.
With easy access to the beach, coastal wetlands, and of course the Tortugario el Banco, a wide range of ecological subjects can be covered.
Wildlife Conservation Society
Staff at the Estación el Banco attended a workshop on shore birds kindly given by WCS and received a diploma.
The surroundings of Estación Biológica el Banco enable nature tours to experience the wonders of Guatemala’s Pacific Coastal environments in comfort.
Great food, combined with comfortable rooms, make Estación Biológica el Banco the perfect base from which to explore the wildlife of the coastal wetlands, and of course the beach and Pacific Ocean.
