Madre de Dios River

The Manu team have been back a few weeks now, but thanks to Cliona we’ve got a whole host of fantastic photos of their jungle adventures. The selection below gives a great idea of what the team got up to out in Peru this summer. They worked extremely hard to complete the installation of a number of biogardens, allowing the community in Salvacion to grow crops productively and sustainably on existing land, rather than needing to clear new areas of rainforest and reducing the need for goods imported from the city. Alongside this they also found the time to teach informal English classes at the local guiding institute, and assist researchers at the Manu Learning Centre with ongoing species surveys. Well done Manu Team!
