Join us on an expedition to the Amazon Rainforest

Join us on an expedition to the Amazon Rainforest. We are planning a new expedition to do more research and investigate opportunities in the region. The Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical forest in the world. It's home to a diverse range of wildlife and being there is a great chance to explore one of Earth's most diverse ecosystems whilst also getting to know some of the amazing people who lives there.

The best thing about visiting these places is to experience life like the locals and to learn from the locals how to best preserve the environment. We're excited to share our work with you and there we will be possibilities to join us on one of our expeditions in the future.
