From the Museum of Texas Tech University:
“Discover the enchanting Cocos Island, Costa Rica’s largest National Park, and UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the Museum of Texas Tech University is dedicated to the conservation, research, and education of the world’s cultural and natural heritage, we are pleased to present the “Journey Through Cocos Island” exhibition. This exhibition is a collaborative effort between the Center for Research in Marine Sciences and Limnology (CIMAR) and the Museum of the University of Costa Rica (Museo UCR). Join us in celebrating and conserving the wonders of Cocos Island for future generations, as we trace the island’s history from its discovery to the present day. The exhibition explores the island’s natural, scientific, historical, political, and economic significance, revealing its intrinsic values to the people of Costa Rica and the entire planet. Alongside our natural history collection from the Natural Science Research Laboratory, this exhibition offers an opportunity to reflect on the importance of education and advocacy for heritage, biodiversity, and marine environments.
Join us for the public talk “Isla del Coco and the Challenge of Animal Agency” by Fullbright Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Mario Solís.
