BATIPA Field Station (BFS) promotes education, research and entrepreneurship in the Panamanian western region with agroecology as a framework to foster interests and action for a sustainable development. BFS is located in the Batipa Peninsula, in the District of David, Chiriqui province. This is a distinctive place to do research on agroecological practices in forest and more agricultural crops (including livestock species). The “BATIPA MODEL” supports a development of understory growth in the teak plots, thus strengthening biodiversity at BFS. The land (within the Batipa peninsula) includes approximately 2000Ha. of mangroves whereas, 1000Ha. are devoted to teak reforestation, 400Ha. to livestock in sylvopastoral system, and 600Ha. are maintained as habitat for endemic wildlife.
