News from the Peruvian Amazon

By Geoff Gallice | Project leader

Greetings from the Peruvian Amazon!

What a great first half of the year we’ve had! Our children finally made it to Fincas Las Piedras – our research and educational center in the Peruvian Amazon - to learn about mammals. So far, we have worked with over 80 children from rural schools using the book called “Who is there?” – a beautiful resource about mammals captured with camera traps in our own station as well as in others throughout the region (free download here). This project, was made in collaboration with the Red de Aprendizaje y Conservación, led by NatGeo explorer Carmen Chávez.

As for our research, we continue generating important information about Amazonian biodiversity and equipping the next generation of Peruvian biologists and conservationists. Our research residency program was a complete success, and all our selected undergraduate students of the year had a meaningful and productive experience in the project. One of them will even help describe a new species to science!

As always, all of this wouldn’t be possible without your support, so thank you for being our champions!

With gratitude,

Geoff, Johana and the rest of the ASA team.
