Starting in 2012 we hope to conduct research at 3 locations in southeast Peru. For specific details of each site, click the appropriate links in the sidebar on the left.
- El Centro de Investigación y Capicitacion en el Río Los Amigos (CICRA) is where our research has been based for the past two years. Of all three sites, CICRA is the most sophisticated, with amenities such as internet and electricity to stay connected with the rest of world. The fees to stay at this site are slightly higher than the others.
- ACCA's Monitoring Center 2 (CM2) is one of two sister sites of CICRA. This site is located on the same side of the Los Amigos River, several hours upstream. Passage to CM2 is not available to the general public or the local mining industry. While this field site does not have internet, it does have considerable infrastructure and is regularly visited by ACCA personel.
- La Consecion de Conservación Rodal Semillero Tahuamanu (CCRST) is located on the Peru-Bolivia border. Accessible by dirt road from Iberia, this research location has the least infrastructure of the three field sites.
