    The Alliance for a Sustainable Amazon (ASA), a non-profit organization working in the southeastern Peruvian Amazon, is pleased to announce openings on a Lepidoptera research expedition during summer 2017.


    The expedition is part of a long-term research project sponsored by the ASA to investigate the basic biology, distribution, ecology, and conservation status of Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) in the southeastern Peruvian Amazon.


    Expedition members will receive hands-on instruction in field methods that facilitate biological research in the tropics, applying our new skills to conducting biological research at the field sites. Expedition members will gain knowledge and skills in
    the following areas:


    * Field methods in the study of tropical Lepidoptera

    * Tropical ecology and biology of key Amazonian plant and animal groups

    * Amazonian plant and animal identification

    * Off-trail and backcountry navigation

    * Canopy access (tree climbing) and sampling techniques (canopy trapping)

    * Major conservation challenges facing the study region and the broader Amazonian ecosystem

    * Issues facing the survival of indigenous Amazonian cultures


    DATES: May 23 - June 5, 2017


    LOCATION: Las Piedras River basin, Madre de Dios, Peru


    REGISTRATION: Open until April 30, 2017. Space is limited, so we recommend to apply early.
