CTT’s President and CEO, Mike Lanzone, is in Peru with some of the world’s greatest tropical ecologists, heading to the Cocha Cashu 2050 Meeting. The goal of the meeting is charting out a 21st century agenda for this premier tropical research station.
For several days this group, organized by San Diego Zoo Global, will be meeting to identify the most promising, innovative, and exciting research opportunities for Cashu over the next 30 years. Currently the group is on a 3-day journey to Cashu, taking them from sea-level to thousands of meters in elevation, and back down into the Amazon. Here are a few pics Mike sent this morning, en route to the Cock-of-the-rock lodge. Stay tuned for more as the adventure unfolds, and for an exciting transmitter deployment next week!
