Enter the seemingly untouched waterways and flooded rainforest of the Amazon basin in northeastern Peru and help Earthwatch to research the rare species that roam the area. EarthWatch is working with the local Cocama people that live near the Samiria River Basin to develop conservation plans that help sustain the local population and the delicate ecosystems and wildlife.
You will meet with Cocama people and explore the river basin and flooded forest in an effort to collect data on the abundant wildlife population living in the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve. While cruising on the ship keep a look out for giant river otters, caiman, and pink river dolphins. While on land you will see monkeys, hundreds of birds, and even manatees swimming in the lakes of the Samiria.
