Amazon Adventure: Peru

Play Slideshow

The Amazon rainforest is unlike any other region in the world. Its unparalleled diversity and incredible size make it a spectacular classroom for the learning adventure of a lifetime. From toucans to howler monkeys, piranhas to three-toed sloths, from the bustling jungle town of Iquitos to the quieter life of remote communities, this workshop will open your eyes to a new world of experiences.

Through hands-on science explorations, meaningful visits to local communities and time to soak in the beauty and magic of the rainforest, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the many characteristics that make this region so unique as well as those that make conservation such a vital on-going challenge here. Preparatory curriculum explores the cultures of the Peruvian Amazon, the remarkable biodiversity of this region and the importance and challenges of tropical rainforest conservation.
