Rainforest Expeditions Research
Rainforest Expeditions is an ecotourism group dedicated to sustaining the Amazon.
Hence the group supports scientific research, helps to develop local communities and educates visitors on the world’s most vital and diverse ecosystem.
This ambitious mission began in 1989, when the first ecotourism lodge was built in partnership with the local community.
The local community shares in revenue from the lodge, which assists with development initiatives.
And the lodge itself is used to employ and educate the local workforce.
Additionally, the lodge provides an amazing opportunity for tourists to have a safe, fun, and authentic experience in the Amazon.
Now, due to the substantial success of this sustainable model, there are three lodges providing this great opportunity – with more lodges on the way.
There is a wide range of Rainforest Expeditions jungle activities.
All of these activities are fun and informative adventures deep within the jungle.
You’ll also find the lodges situated in the wild depths of the forest, as conditions there are best for conducting research.
As a result providing a more authentic jungle experience, full of wildlife encounters!
