Prete Global Access Project
Through a generous gift from the Ernest Prete Jr. Foundation, the BioTrek website is endowed in perpetuity. The gift also provides for the creation of the Ernest Prete Jr. Global Access Project, opening the BioTrek educational experience to the world. Through the use of digital video cameras, telemetry and Internet resources, “virtual” visitors will experience aspects of BioTrek that would not be apparent were they to visit in person: continuously collected data about light, temperature, and humidity in various areas of BioTrek, and real-time images from the rainforest.
