Cape Horn Research Center – Coming Soon!

100_1446.jpgWe are very proud to announce that this year our consortium was able to obtain the funding to implement much needed infrastructure in the CHBR. After years of work on this initiative by dedicated individuals, the IEB was able to take the lead in association with UNT and UMAG to obtain a highly prestigious grant, known as Fondos Basales, that together with contributions from the Center for Environmental Philosophy (CEP), UMAG, UNT and OSARA will provide $300,000 dollars to build a guest house-laboratory at the Omora Park.

This is undoubtedly a major step to ensure the long-term sustainability of our program in Cape Horn. The project will include “bioclimatic” design techniques and efficient energy use, hopefully becoming a model for sustainable construction in the region.
