- Canadian Organization for Tropical Education and Rainforest Conservation
Caņo Palma Biological Station is situated approximately 8 kilometres (5 miles) north of the village of Tortuguero on Costa Rica's north-eastern coast. The Tortuguero area is an ancient flood plain covered by lowland Atlantic tropical wet forest and is biologically the richest ecosystem in Costa Rica. Average daily temperature is about 26 degrees Celsius and rainfall may exceed 6,000 mm per annum.
The Biological Station is located within the Barra Colorado Wildlife Refuge adjacent to Caņo Palma, a narrow, palm-filled canal that separates the Biological Station from the Caribbean Sea by a mere 200-300 metres. The globally endangered green, leatherback, hawksbill and loggerhead sea turtles come ashore to nest on beaches accessible from the station. Annual monitoring programs and resulting data is available on the website.

OBFS is an association of about 180 field stations and professionals concerned with field facilities for biological research and education, primarily in North America and Central America. This site provides links to OBFS member stations. Individual stations include descriptions of courses offered, summer internships, teacher education, etc. OBFS promotes the exchange of information and ideas among field station directors on such topics as management of field stations and reserves, promotion of biological field education and research, environmental monitoring, and funding opportunities. OBFS publishes a newsletter, occasional reports, a field course opportunities poster, and a directory of field stations. An annual meeting is held at a member facility in September, providing a forum for discussion of field station management issues and organization business, and an opportunity to learn from the facilities, habitats and programs of the host station.

The University of Georgia's Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL) has been an important center for extensive and intensive herpetological research since 1967. The herpetology program's major emphasis has been the generation of high quality research involving amphibians and reptiles. SREL researchers have captured, marked and released more than 1 million individuals of 100 species of reptiles and amphibians. These captures represent more species of reptiles and amphibians than have been confirmed from any other public land area in the United States. Participants in the SREL herpetology research programs have always included faculty of the University of Georgia, post-doctoral associates, graduate students and undergraduate research participants from a variety of universities. Other participants include research technicians and numerous visiting herpetologists from throughout the world. The primary funding base for SREL operations has been the U.S. Department of Energy.

The Welder Wildlife Foundation is a private, non-profit foundation. Established in 1954, the Foundation has gained international recognition through its graduate student research program. The primary purpose of the Foundation is to conduct research and education in the field of wildlife management and conservation and other closely related fields.
As a private foundation our purpose and operation remain unhindered by outside political or institutional pressures. Many other research organizations conducting land management research exist across the state and nation, but no other organization has dedicated itself solely to conducting wildlife research in the midst of a ranching operation and an active oil field.
