The Last Refuge of the Amazon Jungle – Event March 2nd at SFU Surrey

by Jason on January 28, 2013

Nine months ago, I ventured into one of the last refuges of the world deep into the heart of the Amazon Jungle to a place known as Manu National Park.  Manu has the highest biodiversity of species in the world and is one of the last untouched regions of the world.  Consequently, during my two month stay I literally felt like I was on Pandora in the movie, “Avatar.”

I spent one month at Cocha Cashu Biological Research Station as a volunteer helping to set up motion sensor camera traps in the jungle to document ground mammals.  After Cashu, I spent another two weeks leading a Men’s Adventure Group through Manu Park as we experienced the jungle.

You will experience what we experienced as you watch the video of our recordings in the jungle.  You will see toucans, macaws, monkeys, spiders, river otters, tapirs, JAGUARS and much more.  You will also see the lessons the jungle taught each of us about our lives while we were there.

In addition, you will hear from Dr. Varun Swamy, Ph.D., who currently teaches at Harvard University.  I met Dr. Swamy during my stay at Cocha Cashu, and he is flying out to share his knowledge and experience of Manu Park, the natural treasures that are there, the threats Manu faces and what can be done to help with conservation.

DOORS OPEN AT 6:30 PM.  EVENT BEGINS PROMPTLY AT 7:00 PM.
