We are passing small villages and houses; they can be seen sporadically along the riverside. The houses are small, hut-like, and raised about 10 feet for possible river flooding. The poverty of the homes is very easy to see.
After dinner we took a two-hour hike into the jungle which was amazing!
There was so much Biodiversity; it was amazing how many species we observed!
Octavio, our guide is great, he is funny and knows so much!

Yacumama Lodge, Rio Yarapa, Peru
At around 7:30 we had a discussion about the canopy, and headed to the Yacumama Preservation Canopy Tower. We did some research and exploration, and then returned to the lodge for lunch. Shortly after lunch we went back to the Tower to do rapid assessments of each of the Towers platforms, and to go on the Zip Line. After dinner we had a presentation from H. Bruce Rinker about Canopy Access.
Thinking about everything Ive learned about and experienced, I am so grateful for the support of everyonemy Mom, Dad, my friends, and especially Mrs. Marta Nottabaum at the Henriquez Memorial Fund, who made this expedition possible for me.
