I’ve written before about the Hoja Nueva “rewilding” center in the Peruvian rain forest, being very impressed with founder Samantha Zwicker‘s efforts there, along with the success the center is having, the growth they are experiencing.
But now, Hoja Nueva has announced a new Ecology Summer Camp, a workshop focused on research and monitoring methods used to study wildlife in their natural habitat. According to their website, the summer camp offers:
• Learn all about the ecology, biology, and behavior of Amazonian wildlife while living deep in the heart of primary rainforest
• Workshop material focusing on mammals, reptiles, and birds
• 80/20 practical/theory ratio, with additional laboratory analysis
• A combination of hands-on learning and research experience in the rainforest mixed with in-depth presentations and theoretical learning from experts in the field
• We specialize in working with university-age students and young professionals that are beginning their careers in conservation, but our workshops are open to all ages
They have two upcoming workshops, one in July and one in August of 2023. Visit the workshop page on their website for details.
