Organization: Biomuseo

FundaciĆ³n Amador is a non-profit organization, formed by a group of distinguished members of the Panamanian community whose objective is the development and maintenance of a tropical biodiversity center in the Amador area. It is the organization behind the Biomuseo. Together with the support of the Panamanian government, which provided the concession of a plot of land destined for the construction of the project and with the commercialization of the adjacent lands, FundaciĆ³n Amador managed to generate the funds so that this beautiful project could become a reality. We also have the scientific support of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the University of Panama and other scientific institutions in the country (Source).
