A once in a lifetime learning opportunity for students from across the world

Interacting With Local Communities

Many schools want their students to interact with local native communities and our school group programs help facilitate this is a safe manner. Students are given the chance to live with local families, help prepare food, harvest local fruits and vegetables and learn about the rich histories that shape these local communities. These interactions are also a wonderful opportunity for local communities, providing eco-tourism income and the chance for local children in these communities to learn from other young adults.

Learning from Field Biologists

Students and teachers are given the opportunity to work directly alongside our experienced field biologists. Student groups are given the chance to accompany our bird team as they catch and apply bands/rings to birds using specialized mist-nets, join our mammal team as they conduct research looking for large mammals such as Jaguars and Tapirs, venture out at night with our Bat Team as they catch large neotropical bats, explore the rainforest at night with our herpetofauna team looking for frogs and snakes, get into out boat and join our caiman team while they survey and catch large caimans in the local rivers and join our botany team to identify and measure the towering trees that make up the Amazon rainforest.
