A full solar-panel system supplies
the research station and dormitories with energy. Funds for the
lab, the greenhouse and the solar-panel system were provided
by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the United Nations Development
Program (UNDP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The central hut “La Sabana Research Station” was
built to accommodate scientists and occasional visitors with
the basic facilities such as kitchen, baths, dormitories, a meeting
room and a radio communication system. Four rustic palapa-dormitories
are available for visitors and workers.
