We offer customized itineraries for qualified people interested to assist scientists and/or staff in conservation related projects. Some degree of education or training in the biological sciences may be required. Projects include working with camera traps or drone cameras to collect data on animal species of interest, assisting scientists in describing new species, working with Amazonia’s staff biologist, assisting regional conservation NGOs or working with university scientists investigating the flora and fauna of the Tahuayo River basin.

Internships are also available for a modest number of high school and college students. Internships and conservation project itineraries typically involve a commitment of 3 weeks to 6 months. Cost is dependent on the background qualifications and project type. More information about ongoing research that you may assist in can be found on this page.

We recommend the purchase of travel insurance.

Travel protection should be purchased to cover most penalty costs in the event you need to cancel or change your travel plans.  It also can provide medical and emergency assistance protection.  Amazonia Expeditions does not assume responsibility for problems or losses arising from the operation of flights such as cancellations, delays or lost luggage. If you do not take the recommended flight and arrive late you may have to pay for a chartered private boat to the lodge. For protection against problems with airlines or other problems such as illness or political or natural disasters beyond control of the tour operator we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance.

   

The trip was wonderful! We enjoyed every bit of our stay and tour in Amazonas.

Just wanted to say what an amazing experience staying at the lodge was, I only wish I had stayed longer… I hope I can come back again soon.

It was incredible and a trip of a lifetime Paul! My sister Paula and I had an amazing time and loved everything — your facilities and staff are top notch and I want to come back with my husband and daughters!!
