Isla Tres Perros is a Panamanian island with an area of 22,745 m2 (244,830 sq ft) located in the middle of the Panama Canal in the southwest region of the Gatun Lake.[1][2] The Island was created when the waters of the Chagres River were dammed by the Gatun Dam to create the Gatun lake. When the waters rose, they covered a significant part of the existing rainforest, and the hilltops became the islands that are now scattered throughout the lake.
