The Organization for Tropical Studies, which runs three research centers in Costa Rica, is celebrating 50 years.
The Museo Nacional has created a photo exhibit to honor the organization.
There are 52 different works, including four sculptures. Photographers are Juan José Pucci, Giuseppe Tarnero, Karla Kruse and Carlos de la Rosa, said the museum, adding that the sculptures are by Jonathan Torres.
Naturally the photos are of outdoors Costa Rica, and they cover most of the country from the dry northwest to the Parque la Amistad in southeastern Costa Rica.
The organization will be having its annual meeting June 23 to 27 at the Ramada Herradura Convention Center.
The non-profit organization operates the La Selva Biological Station at the northern end of the Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo. The Palo Verde Biological Station is in Parque Nacional Palo Verde in Guanacaste. The Las Cruces Biological Station and the Wilson Botanical Garden are in the south.
The organization provides both undergraduate and graduate academic courses.
