Current Expedition - Limited Spots Available! 

Amazon Riverboat Safari
July 6-13, 2024


On our next expedition, local environmentally concerned high school students will travel to the Peruvian Amazon in summer 2024 to take part in biological conservation research and sustainability leadership initiatives. The vast, pristine Amazonian forests of northeastern Peru are home to an incredible array of wildlife. As you travel along the Yarapa River, you’ll spot pink river dolphins and caimans swimming through the waters, while monkeys and extraordinary birds move through the canopy overhead. In the lakes you can find a vast array of fish, and sometimes you can even spot rare giant river otters hunting and playing. You’ll sleep aboard a restored, 100-year-old air-conditioned vessel from the Rubber Boom era that is moored in the Yarapa River of the Samiria-Yavari protected areas. As part of an Earthwatch team, you’ll help survey the area’s wildlife to gather key information about the health of the ecosystem and the sustainability of traditional hunting and fishing. Through this community-based approach, you’ll help researchers develop conservation strategies that confront the current threats from climate change and ensure sustainable use of these valuable resources.
