green earthIt is safe to say that most people in Panama are not living light on the planet.  Many of us often drive large cars with only a few people aboard, buy things made of inferior plastic and wrapped in plastic.  We then “use” this stuff and then we throw it away, where ever “away” happens to be.  That usually means it ends up in a dump.
Most of us have lived in societies where environmental consciousness is a way of life and we were well trained how to do our parts to preserve the resources on our plant.  And when we arrived in Panama we were shocked and angry to see how the population as a whole has no environmental awareness or concern.  For years many expats have groused about this but have done nothing about it.  Well, it seems we now have enough concerned people along the coast to put some programs into place and show that a few people can make a difference.  Here are two programs that can  be developed quickly.

Leatherback-turtle-hatching-Copyright-WWF-CanonRoger-LeGUEN 151x200Every year, 20,000 - 30,000 sea turtles head to coastlines in Panama to lay their eggs. The Azuero peninsula on the Pacific coast of Panama is one of these places. Isla de Canas, an island off southern coast of the peninsula, is one of the most important nesting sites for 4 species of sea turtles: Olive Ridley (Lepidochelys Olivacea) Pacific Green (Chelonia Mydas) Leatherback (Dermochelys Coriacea) Hawsbill (Eretmochelys imbricate)


In the Azuero peninsula, sea turtle nesting most commonly occurs between the months of September and November; however, nesting can happen as early as May and continued well into December. There is no telling when the turtles will show up, but when they do, they attract humans, some are interested in harvesting their eggs for food, while others are there to protect the eggs.

altGot a couple free hours on Saturday? Come JOIN THE FUN!

Finca La Maya offers free courses to families in our communities, and we NEED volunteers!  Easy and fun, it’s only two hours on Saturdays to help us to help others. Only requirement: a set of hands and eyes and a willingness to assist!

Finca La Maya’s goal is to enhance education and cultural opportunities for local Panamanians. Most primary schools in Panama’s small, poorer “interior” (rural) communities cannot afford to hire teachers or provide materials for English or art instruction in their classrooms.

La Maya was opened to the public in January of 2007. As our way of “giving back” to our community, we offer free classes every Saturday: English language classes (for all ages) 9:30 – noon, “Art for Kids”, and a computer skills workshop, 1 – 3 pm.

Columbian Paso Fino Contest at Coronado PDF Print E-mail

paso fino horseThe Coronado Equestrian Center and ASOFINO invites you to share in the tradition of Paso Fino this Saturday, September 8th at a contest showing the magnificent Paso Fino horse in full form.

The Paso Fino horse is known for their smooth, natural, four beat, lateral ambling gait and are used in many disciplines, but are especially popular for trail riding. In the United States there are two main groups of horses that are popularly called "Paso Fino:" One, also known as the Pure Puerto Rican Paso Fino, which originated in Puerto Rico. The other, often called the Colombian Paso Fino or Colombian Criollo Horse was developed in Colombia. Though from similar Spanish ancestors, the two groups developed independently of one another in their home nations.

The Paso Fino has several different body types from quite small and refined to very large and powerful. The action of the two strains is somewhat different. The Puerto Rican Paso Fino is prized for its fine or delicate step while the Colombian Paso Fino tends to have more of a rapid, piston-like action.

The Paso Fino executes a natural evenly spaced four beat lateral ambling gait, similar to many gaited horses. Both the Colombian and the Puerto Rican strains of the Paso Fino execute the lateral gait naturally, without the aid of training devices.
