Testimonial from a past participant: "Overall the trip was fantastic. For anyone who is interested in biology, ecology, and conservation, it definitely succeeds in hitting all of those bases. I gained a great cultural understanding of Peru, as well as a better approach for sustainability in my everyday life. I learned a great deal of knowledge about Peruvian biodiversity and ecology that would never be the same if it was read out of a book. A lot of the knowledge I gained was priceless, and I am taking away a lot of amazing experiences from this trip."
