I am seeking a Research Assistant to join me in the Peruvian Amazon, 7 km from the capital of Madre de Dios, Puerto Maldonado, from the 8th of April until the 15th of May 2018. Research will be focused on insect biodiversity in a silvopastoral system.
ReVerde is a 4 ha natural reserve, botanic garden and research farm which specialises in the development of sustainable agricultural production in the Amazon. We envisage an Amazon where landscapes and farmers support one another to increase the provision of ecosystem services. Our mission is to promote the the development and dissemination of sustainable agriculture in the Amazon. We are currently developing agroforestry systems to increase the sustainability of cattle production in the Amazon. We work with lots of students from the local university. Shared accommodation and food is included. Please email lucydab...@gmail.com with the title INSECT BIODIVERSITY RESEARCH ASSISTANT Best wishes Lucy Dablin
