We have addressed three issues in this project regarding the Batipa Peninsula and the surrounding areas: solutions for teak by-products, reconnecting wildlife corridors, and the sustainability of the Chiriquí Province through education. Our mission was to create effective and attainable solutions for these issues. We conducted primary research, via interviews and on-site visits, to find low-cost, low-risk solutions for these problems. Our recommendations included new equipment for better teak efficiency, construction of permanent structures for wildlife, planned future projects, proposed classes, critiqued Oteima’s online presence, and generated new tourism itineraries for Batipa.
