At Tropical Tree Climbing, we are committed to supporting research for Amazon Nature Conservation and furthering the understanding of the Amazon. We strive to connect our guests with the important scientific work being done in the rainforest. That’s why we created Amazon Vision, a collection of citizen science projects that allow the public to participate in the research being done around our jungle lodge. They all have one thing in common: giving our guests a genuine opportunity to participate in scientific research.
Amazon Vision Projects
Demographic and ecological data will be collected through one hundred camera traps, direct observation and radio- telemetry. Biological samples will be collected from jaguars to inform genetic and epidemiological analyses. Through radio-telemetry techniques, the jaguar’s home range will be estimated for females and males. This is the first jaguar study in this region of the Brazilian Amazon.
From June to September 2018, this effort goes into overdrive and our jungle lodge is packed with botanists, zoologists, entomologists, veterinarians – a diversity of biologists doing exciting field research. We plan on bringing our guests to a specific location of the Amazon Forest, to teach them the flora and fauna to help catalog for creating a future nature reserve.
