Peru Amazon Rainforest – Educational Field Trip Logistics

Partner with Fauna Forever and we will help your high school or university college group with all the logistics for its planned trip to the Peruvian Amazon. We can deal with everything from airport pick-up/drop-off in Puerto Maldonado, hotel/lodge reservations, terrestrial transport (car and bus rental) and river transport (fast boats, slow boats, and row boats), safety and medical considerations (accompanying doctor, emergency contact and extraction solutions), not to mention identifying and contracting specialist guides, drivers, cooks, local field assistants, and professional field researchers. We can also organise venues and guest speakers who can give quality illustrated presentations in English or Spanish on topics as varied as the interrelated ecology of macaws and monkeys in Tambopata, ecotourism development in the Peruvian Amazon, ecosystem service flows and the economic valuation of rainforests, timber versus non-timber forest products, the benefits and impacts of the Interoceanica Highway, and the pros and cons of evolving Peruvian legislation on the integrity of protected areas and poverty alleviation, to name but a few. With the benefit of our generator, projector, and screen, such talks (and the subsequent discussions that they frequently generate) can be given at virtually any location with a roof. Additional adventure and community service components, such as camping, canoe trips on oxbow lakes, canopy tower access, and projects with both native and mestizo communities, including visits to locally homestays, can also be catered for.

Due to the not-for-profit status of Fauna Forever, any profits from organising education-focussed field trips to the Peruvian rainforest will be ploughed straight back into research and conservation efforts in Tambopata.

Why Partner with Fauna Forever?

Over the last 15 years of field research and conservation work in the Tambopata rainforest area of Peru, the Fauna Forever team has learnt how to accomplish its aims in what many would describe as a challenging environment. In this time, we have amassed a plethora of information on how to get things done efficiently, and we’re eager to share this knowledge for the benefit of others.
