Blogging is just one part of our mission. While we’re starting out touring the Andes and learning more about the environmental, cultural, and economic history there, our main destination is a new conservation and ecotourism site in the Madre de Dios area of the Amazon rainforest.
Once there, our students will be doing research in four main teams:
- Forest Protection
- Community interactions
If you scroll down the blog feed below, you can read about some of the background context the teams have been learning about, so far.
End products of their work in the rainforest will include writing, videos, photos, think-tank sessions with local partners, and much more. Stay tuned! We’ll keep the updates coming, whenever we have access to the internet…and once we get back, the stories will continue.
