*To the Amazon Research Center lodge, ARC

The Research Center is more remote.  On the boat ride to the Research Center we stop to see bats, sloths, monkeys, raptors, toucans.

We have over 100 km of hiking trails from the research center, most of the trails are laid out in a grid to facilitate the scientific collection of population data. The trails go through several ecosystems, including bajial, high and low restinga, palm swamp and terra firme. We can see many different species of monkeys, including brown and white capuchins, saki monkeys, titi monkeys, squirrel monkeys, pygmy marmosets, moustached tamarins, saddle-backed tamarins, and sometimes uakaris, as well as giant tayra weasels and tamandua anteaters.  Data collected from camera traps also reveal a high density of jaguar live here but these are rarely seen.

It is on the trail grid that biologist Rose Hores spent three years studying one of the world’s rarest monkeys, the Red Bald-headed Uakari and also is where Dr. Janice Chism has spent a decade researching a describing a species of saki monkey unknown to science. Amazonia Expeditions has supported the important conservation oriented research of these and many more women scientists and graduate students.
