Our mission is to educate the next generation of natural historians and conservationists in topics related to rainforest ecology, and to provide biologists with research opportunities at our field sites in Peru and India.
In addition to field courses in Tropical Biology and Primatology, as well as extended research assistantships, we also offer this training in the Amazon for filmmakers and photographers, which focuses on documentary video production, field ethics, and camera technique.
We are offering a Wildlife Cinematography course taught in the Peruvian Amazon by Emmy winner Robin Cox (BBC Earth/Natural History Unit) with Keshav Sishta (Blackbird Productions) and guided by two experienced tropical biologists.
This summer's workshop runs from August 7th-17th, 2015, and offers opportunities to film/photograph a wide range of wildlife in a region with 500+ species of birds, 11 primate species, snakes, caiman, turtles, insects, and much more. Enrollment deadline is July 20th.
On June 8th, the first 8 applicants who sign up starting at 8am (Central Standard Time) receive more than 30% off the cost of the course ($1100 savings!).
