Inca Escapades: Machu Picchu Trek
Trek to the most spectacular and iconic ruins of the Inca world and gain an insight into this unique civilisation.
The Amazonian rainforests of Peru offer a spectacular opportunity for research and conservation. In an area which was previously deforested due to logging demands, this project focusses on the redevelopment, research and management of creating a rainforest which works with local communities to ensure sustainability.
On this project groups work alongside researchers and scientists on active studies which focus on regeneration of deforested areas and monitoring population regrowth in these areas. The tasks on the project are varied and will depend on the needs of the study at the time of the adventure, but can include monitoring the populations of a variety of animals in different rainforest zones.
This adventure embraces the spirit of the rainforest and groups will learn practical tasks such as tracking, planting trees, placing camera traps and data collection techniques. As the projects help contribute to active and viable studies the focus of the projects will vary.
