A Scientific Treasure Trove
New Species Discovered From Cerro Chucantí
Surveys and research at Cerro Chucantí conducted by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI), the University of Panama, and biologists from around the world continue to reveal the presence of unique flora and fauna. Some of these species represent new records for the country of Panama, while others are completely new to science! Many of the brand new species are endemic to Cerro Chucantí, found nowhere else in the world, and many of these have already been proposed to be critically endangered (CR) because of their drastically limited ranges – often as small as 4km. Explore the list below to see what species have been discovered in the Chucantí Private Reserve so far.
