Extensive Trailgrid and Guide Support
The trail grid behind the Research Center Peru Lodge covers 55 miles (+70 km) spread over more than 1000 acres (2200 hec). It is the largest trail system offered in the Amazon.
Students delve deep into this thriving landscape by foot, boat, and canopy zipline for unique observations of rare, endemic, and endangered species in their natural habitats. Students can assist researchers in collecting important population data on birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals inhabiting the massive grid of transect trails.
Accompanied by natives who are trained in species identification, the data collected includes date, time, species, GPS location, nearest grid coordinate, group size, perpendicular distance from the nearest individual of the group to the trail, distance surveyed, and transect code
